I want. Blinking I tip my hat to you. Will Girl Crush be available commercially?


Kent has this one being introduced in 2016, as well.


And this one. No photograph posted, yet, but it sounds lovely.

'Livy' is lovely........I hope Kent checks in. Introducing is probably the simple part. Making them available is more challenging. It will be nice if someone with a catalog or web-site picks them up. We will do out best by word of mouth to hopefully create a little interest. A number of years ago Ben Hagar saw D.C. Anderson's 'Dazzling Gold' blooming in a Utah garden. He took interest in it and listed it with his iris. It won numerous awards.......

Thanks everyone. I recently recieved confirmation that the registrations were approved.

They won't be introduced in 2016, though. A couple of seedlings are being evaluated by a commercial grower, but I can't imagine they would be introduced before 2018, and then only if things go well.

Jumped the gun a bit reserving names. Shrug! 2018 would be about right, my first crosses were in 2008 and I was told to figure on spending a decade or so working to the point of an introduction.
