|I knew that daylilies did this, but not iris's. I came across a photo at AIS on Facebook that showed prolifs on an iris flower stalk. I have never had any. Has any one else? and which ones?|
I would post the pic of the prolifs, but I don't think I have the right to.

|One of my daylilies has a proliferation on almost every stalk. All the others, there might be one or two.. The Iris shown is a dichotoma... I've not seen one on a bearded, that I recall.. |
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

I dream of a world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.

|While I've never had one in my garden, I have seen one on i.pallida, at a friends house. They are pretty rare, I guess, but do happen occasionally. There was at least one that was registered, Proliferation's Pride. I'm not sure if it was ever introduced.|

|As I understand it, some are "clones", but most are 'sports'....which would be somewhat different than the parent, either in color, or texture.|

|There are occasional iris sports like 'Beverly in White' but not many.|
