I'm rather new at hybridizing, but a few nice ones popped up.

Charriet ~ Welcome to the Iris Forum! Hurray!

Those are beautiful seedlings. I especially like the first one. What are the parents?

Another Welcome! charriet.
That first seedling is gorgeous, and the box seedling 1 is just as nice too.

Aren't they fun! You got some interesting ones. The First one reminds me of Bubble Bubble. I like the pattern of the one labeled Box Seedling 1.

I agree with those liking the first seedling. Thumbs up

(No, my one new seedling which I had hoped would bloom this season, has not. But its from rebloomers, so there's hope for the fall. Crossing Fingers! )

These two are siblings. They are very very different. Spice Trader is one parent. Came through in the one bloom

Welcome! Charriet. You've definitely got some keepers in your seedlings Thumbs up
I like these two. I like the beige on the hafts and the lighter rim on the edge of the second one.

The bottom plant is out of Cold Fusion

I'd seen some stunning progeny of Cold Fusion and thought I'd try it.
I crossed it with a relative and it will be interesting to see what I get. Course I have to wait two years.

I have a couple pods that I did and another that is a bee pod but on a good plant. How long to they need to go before harvesting? Do they get brown like daylily pods? I don't want them to burst open.

bluegrass...the stems should be brown. if you're worried about burst pods, just tie part of an old nylon stocking around them.
