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
