Irises are finally blooming here, the medians anyway, have been for a couple of weeks actually. Don't have very many SDB seedlings, but will share what I have.

Not sure if this one is worth keeping or not, but I really like it so probably will at least for another year. The falls are pale silvery blue, while the standards have a bit of green in them, and the beards are a wonderful dark blue purple. Nice ruffles.

More tomorrow if I find the time.

This one has some nice ruffles, too. Not the most exciting color, but it's a happy little flower and it blooms like a maniac. An added bonus is that it smells like heaven. I can often smell it from across the garden.

Like the white beards with the yellow. Any iris that smells like heaven is a winner in my book!

Mine, too! Is that a lighter border around the edge of the fall? Or am I seeing things? Blinking I really like them both.

It's a beautiful color but the scent secures its place in any garden.

If it "blooms like a maniac", it's a winner!! Blooms are what it's all about! That it smells good too is a wonderful bonus!

This one's a lot like its pod parent, Lemon Twist. But, at least in my garden, it is somewhat more ruffled, has sharper definition between the white and the yellow on the falls, and darker blue beards. Not sure if that's enough to make it worth keeping or not. I do like it a lot, though.
