I can't wait to see the rest of his new intro's for 2014 there were so many unique and outstanding seedlings in his garden's it has to be hard to pick which ones to intro every year. I really liked both of these especially CELEBRATORY it was one of my favorites it really stood out and I kept going back to it over and over again every thing about it was Outstanding !!! Here are some pic's of both.

Love Celebratory -- but much prefer the Iris in the photo behind Spiral Galaxy -- a white and cocoa concoction. This is in the Monterey Bay picture, not Brad's.

I saved this photo of a Ghio seedling from a couple of years ago. Wonder if this is that Iris in the background of Spiral Galaxy......

They're both nice, but Celebratory is really a beauty.

Mary Ann I think it is his 2013 intro called Emblematic and you are right it is another great flower and you will get to see it up close and personal if you make the road trip in the spring Big Grin

Don't worry Mary Ann, You'll be so blown away by all beautiful flowers that you won't know which ones to take! I could hardly concentrate enough to get pictures. I was so awestruck by the beauty.

May Ann Big Grin I will know who to call if they are missing LOL

Tom I'm glad you liked it we had a super bloom season with cool days and lot's of sunshine normally the wind beats them up but this year was as close to perfect as we will get and I had a lot of fun making crosses, super excited to see the new ones take off and start growing, I just finished soaking the seeds and adding them to the refrigerator over the weekend. I am hoping next year will be a repeat with the weather and I took lot's of pictures Green Grin! will share some more soon. I found new favorites in just about every color we will have to update the favorite color threads to help pass the long winter days.

Accomplice #1 (of course, after increasing @ Mary Ann's, they will need to come to my plot to increase before making it back).

You will not notice this diversion as you have too many plants to worry about.
