Those are beautiful seedlings 🌱 Thank You! for sharing. 40.12.7 was my favorite too. I am a fan of broken colors and I don't remember seeing any like that yet. I hope it performs well in the future. Acorn

I agree on CK 123 and I really like that first broken colour one as well.
Would definitely buy one that looked like the 2nd one in the 32-13 Raspberry Silk X Attrazione Fatale cross! Lovey dubby

Thanks for sharing, Cory! I tip my hat to you.

I like the nice dark colors of the Safari Sunset cross with that bright gold beard. Smiling I've also noticed that the bloom form on the second year can be much improved over it's first year bloom. About all you seem to get that first year is to know the colors.

Thank you for the comments on my seedlings. I had more that bloomed, but didn't keep them. I wish I knew what the parentage of CK123 was. It's a a nice seedling, just need more time to grow it. The 72-12 cross bloomed a few nice ones.

I've been making a ton of mtb x tb crosses trying for something new in the mtb plants. Still working on ruffled broken color flowers, that will grow good for me in Indiana. B/ C like to rot out for me.

Hoping that I have a big bloom of new seedlings this year.

I'm with the crowd on CK123 as well.. Also the rosy one that you said you liked the colors.

I've heard that the broken colors are difficult to breed with good form. I guess that's the challenge to work on in breeding..

Thanks for sharing your "babies" with us..

I love broken colour irises and my favourite is the first one. I love seeing people's seedlings because I get to to see the variety of patterns that a single cross creates. Thankyou for sharing these with us Thumbs up
