Okay, I'm back. Been out shoveling snow. Couldn't get the car out of the driveway. Got a few minutes here to list some more pics. I don't think I will take the time to list the parentage , however if someone wants to know on a certain one, I will run it down for you. Smiling

They are all exceptionally beautiful irises! You should introduce these.

The last one is interesting. I find the veining directly under the beard as it extends out to the edge of the Fall VERY interesting. I noticed that the two "Central" vein areas are not affected by the pinkish tones/splotches on the rest of the Fall. Would be interested to see how you could make that contrast more obvious.

Greg -- that's what I liked about that pink one too -- that white *stripe* down the center of the fall. I noticed that tendency on the lavender Iris too (5th one). Marvin -- are the pink and lavender Irises related?

I like the blue, the white with blue crests, love the color in the pale blue/white with blue sanding, I think the last one in the first series may technically be a variegata luminata and it has exceptionally nice standards for a luminata--really nice! And see what I told you about that white seedling, Marvin? I'm not the only one who thinks that deserves a name. All of them are really nice, but those are my favorites.

Thanks for the nice comments Ben. I will definitely study that one closely this spring and see what we have. The variegata plic luminata whatever. I am not sure it is still here. I will look for it. In the meantime here are a few more.

Like the 3rd one for the colors AND the SA horns!

I also kinda like the last one too. Not sure why, but it "speakes" to me.
