Speaking of seedlings here are couple of
photos of a few of my seedlings during their maiden bloom this past
Some of the seedlings in this cross
produced iris petals with a luminous pearl-like
sheen. I personally have not seen anything like it. In
addition to this high gloss sheen they have diamond
dusting (which I have seen on numerous irises).
The photos capture some of this pearl-like sheen
but not in it's intensity.
This one is in PINK. It opens brighter than it
tends to remain.
First photo is just as it is unfurling.
This was the seedling the following day. Substance
was thick almost like plastic.
I hope to see better form develop and maybe more
buds as the years follow. This year there were 6 buds.
