w/different backside color - input please
Speaking of iris where the backside of the falls
is a different color. Here is one of my seedlings that bloomed this
year. (Maiden Bloom) 3 photos of it here.
I haven't had a real chance to evaluate it yet,
but it fascinated me. The first day when it opens - - the inside
color of the falls open up sort of a watermelon color. By the second and
third day it fades to an orange. In one of the photos you can see (one
of it's flowers which is about to open) that the undersides of the
falls are the same color as the standards.
I also was impressed with it's flaring falls. For
it's maiden bloom - it was triple socketed. So far - with a
total of 9 buds. And was about 30-32 inches tall. Growth at this
point is steady and moderate. Both parents are tall - - so I'm thinking next
year the height will probably be taller - - up to 36-38 inches.
And I don't know what else may change.
