Tall Bearded Iris 'Queen in Calico'(For my File) (Iris germanica (Orris))

A Tall Bearded Iris with line and spots. Waited 3 years since purchase for this to flower. I've already used the pollen on the flowers 3 anthers to pollinate other varieties, today.

Use of this Iris has been my breeding project this year. Unfortunately the first attempted crossing has just failed, no pod development and it's withered.

That's such a shame Siris wishing you luck for your next try.

Now I've used all the pollen (3 stamens per flower head)on every flower from this plant, so 11 opertunities left for successful pollination.

Let's hope they all come through
