I'm not a 'pink' person either except when it comes to flowers. I have a peach BB seedling which is great except that it doesn't increase very much. I want to fix that trait & with luck not losing the color.
The 2nd photo is a first yr. plant & have to study that one.
I love FASHIONABLY LATE and purchased it last year, and I hope it will bloom this spring -- and I just hope it looks as good here as yours does, Aruba!
And Lucy, I really like both of your medians too. So are you thinking you need to cross the peach one with something else to increase its vigor, thereby increasing the increases on a resulting seedling?
Betty its one of the best growers I have it blooms every year here and really stands out in my mixed bed I get a lot of people that come during bloom season stop at that one the color of it is really bright. I was wondering if you had any full pictures of your Iris Beds with all the different varities you have all bet they are spectacular in full bloom.
Dot I like the picture of Cast of Characters pretty flower and good form.
yes, I like the peach flower, but needs to be crosses onto a more vigorous plant. Good point: it has pollen. Bad point: it usually blooms every other year. When you like the TB irises, remember others had to work to get them. I think about 100 increses of the plant are needed for introduction, that's why the brand new plands each yr are so expensive. As more of them appear then the price can drop as there are more of each one.
