Okay, I have a question for all you iris experts.
I've been advised that if I am going to hybridize (yeah, I'm gonna pollen dab
), I should use "modern" parents, meaning those (iirc) whose hafts touch or even overlap, and whose falls are wide. (I'm still
not sure what a "haft" is... since it seems it is not the shoulder.)
I would like something that has a lot of ruffling, and fragrance if I can get it, and I would prefer taller to shorter (so 35" or taller).
Given all of that, what would be a good
white parent to use? Or something (I don't know how iris colors are inherited) which when used with a white, will produce white offspring? It doesn't have to be pure white throughout... little touches of color would be okay... but ultimately at least some of the offspring should be mostly white.
(It has also been suggested to me to look at award winners, but maybe there is something recent out there that is even better?)
Your suggestions, please?
