I think it's lovely! Not ordinary at all. Good job!

Thank You! Thanks Annie. I wasn't sure about Surprise Symphony at first but I like it now. Hilarious! The colour of the falls won me over.

There are some better photos in my post in the "Please post your 2017 Iris Seedlings here" thread in the iris forum showing it in the sun and shade:
Totally_Amazing said:Some better photos (minus the raindrops) of my seedling Birthday Surprise x Set To Music which I have named Surprise Symphony (thanks for the name Evelyn Smiling ). Subsequent blooms have kept the white dart. The colour of the falls is pretty. It is more red and less purple than its daddy "Set To Music" and it also has a slight rim around the falls like its daddy.

Parents...


I think a couple more of my seedlings were close to flowering this year (number 2 and 6). I noticed they were wobbly and appeared to have been bumped or trodden on. It wasn't smart to plant them along the edge of the path that leads to my front door. I also noticed that seedling number 4 has slight purple based foliage. I will post some more photos of my seedlings soon.

I think it is fascinating to see that lovely tawny color in the offspring when it is not very prominent in either parent.
