A new seedling!!!!

Seedling 13-UNG-03-53



Thumb of 2016-02-29/Misawa77/04ecd3

"Unguicularis seedling 13-UNG-03-53, continuing to evaluate. It has a double dose of the white I.unguicularis Alba in its background. Most white unguis have very narrow petals and don't grow strongly. This seedling has good petal width and grows well. It is a very pale lavender, not quite white yet, but we're working on it. Unguis are in real good bloom now here"

Depends on the type RB (regalia bred as fairly hardy but hard for non-specialists to find. OGB- are good for our area (they will be marked), add abit of sand or grit to the soil. the hybridizer who grew them in CT is dead, but Supersition has some of them. be sure and add the - ones. they are 3/4 regular bearded & 1/4 aril. they have the look with the signal.

It depends on what you grow. For instance advice from here on Japanese iris is not much since we don't grow them.
