So I've been in Oklahoma a whole year now and have been starting my collection all over. I regret not pulling up and taking with me every rhizome, but live and learn I suppose. This spring I do have seedlings from my old garden and I'm hoping to get some blooms either this year or next. I purchased a few Mdb's and Sdb's for the first time so I looking forward to see how they do. India Ink seems to be the first to bloom for me so far. Though I may have missed some as I just came back from a family emergency.

Thank you Tom!
I'm super excited to get things growing! I finally got to take a look at my seedlings this morning and there are bloom stocks! Looks like most are going to be in the purple range this one in particular looks interesting purple+ gold!

Yes, I made crosses in my former garden and brought the seeds with me. Unfortunately I didn't keep records on any of these crosses I just did them for fun.

I agree Always exciting to see what pops up with new seedlings.
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice!

Thank Elsa , yeah the wind has done a number on them so far this season. An hour or two after the picture it hailed with rain and lighting.... hopefully no broken stocks and I'll at least get to see the rest bloom :/

Thank you lilli! I know my projects super small potatoes but it's still fun.
I'm watching the others and I'm starting to think most of the iris seedlings are siblings because I'm seeing more purple and gold hopefully they will be somewhat different. I think one has low hoe silver as a parent because it's such a dwarf but it has yet to produce a stock so who knows...

I'm still waiting on these guys, one more day should do it Crossing Fingers!

Nice seedling, Rebekah! And I like the unknown purple dwarf with the little white darts. Please add the name when you've had a chance to look it up. Smiling
