Hi Will,
I didn't use to like veining, but the longer I grow irises the more I like it.  It seems to add character and depth to the flower. Busy Being Blue is one in particular that I'm thinking of............................. it has deep blue veining.  It seems to make THAT iris really stand out.  I'd be interested in your results if you tried to cross your seedling with it.  Good luck on your hybridizing venture............... it's sure to be an adventure!

I just recently started hybridizing.  I'm attaching a pic of one of my first seedlings.  It resembles
some older varieties, but has nice green veining on the falls. parentage is unknown, let me know
what you think of the viening, and of other varieties that have it.  Thanks.Will
