Linda, I really like that color. It’s one that I am working with in
my pollen daubing.It’s found
in Role Model, and to greater and lesser extent in Arizona Sandstone and Cast
of Characters. The hafts are narrow, but I’ve seen
worse on newer irises.I think you
have a nice seedling.

Mueller bee pod sdlng
Rebloomer from bee pod seeds that Barb Johnson gave me
several years ago, collected by Mueller from his garden.
Faults - narrow falls (a lot more than a thumb
width spacing at the hafts), messy hafts, not the healthiest, not
cooperatively fertile. Good qualities - reliable rebloom, moderately
healthy, high bud count & low branching (not sure that's actually a plus -
sure makes it hard to put in a vase). Nothing else even vaguely
like it reblooms here, other than maybe BELVI QUEEN, which has the same
pigments, but doesn't look anything like this.
Not sure this gives a good idea of the color -
it's one of those pinky mauve purplish browny things that result from
layering of blue and yellow. I have a photo of the pigment
extraction if anybody wants to see.
