Loic  --  Thanks for posting, with Francelle's help, these photos.  They should be a help to those of our members who are considering crossing older irises with very modern irises.  I'd say the results of this cross are better than what usually could be expected, in terms of the form of the blossom.  So, it speaks well for ROMANTIC EVENING's ability to pass on the broad falls characteristic.  The acid test, I think, will be the next generation.  Also noteworthy is that 4 or 5 of the 6 seedlings appear to have the velvety texture in the falls, which both parents possess. This characteristic is often lost in a cross, and it appears to require a gene for it in both parents. --  Griff

Francelle, can you try try forward this to iris-photo ?



Here are the 6 seeedlings that bloomed so far from the cross (Rajah brook X Romantic evening).

I had sent the first one (the only one i kept) to the forum, but it's fun to see them all, even the dogs...!


The last one opened last week-end and i will keep this one too, if it proves to really be a rebloomer....


I also add the picture of Rajah Brook.

There isn't anything about it in the register, just it's name.

Don't remember where i got this : Norton 1945, but it's a beginning.
