Magic In Me
65.00 65.00 65.0 USD
MAGIC IN ME (Blyth ’21) TB Mid-Late 37” (94cm) This came from a cross made in Keith Keppel’s garden in Oregon by me using an American Iris as pod parent and pollen parent is from a Keppel cross made in Australia from Australian varieties and seed sent back to US and raised by Keith Keppel. The seedling which was to become Magic in Me was raised and selected in Australia and was returned to America for naming and introduction, a complete international effort! Standards are creamy lemon, faintly flushed lavender at midribs. The falls are lavender-violet with blended tan around the edges and hafts. Beards are prominent burnt tangerine. An elegant Iris that grows easily and flowers in profusion. Sdlg. Z16-1: Wishes Granted X Keppel 11-178X: (Jealous Guy x Rubenesque)

THINK DIAMONDS (Blyth ’21) TB Early-Mid 38” (96cm) We have loved this sister to Lovology from the first day it opened and it has been exceptional each season since. The standards are creamy white, deepening at midribs to soft lemon. Falls are creamy white with rich gold hafts spreading across the falls and shading lighter down the falls. Beards are golden orange, lightening towards outer parts. Branching is a bit high for a champion show stem, but it has heaps of buds and makes a spectacular display in a clump. Good increaser.

Destiny's Kiss
65.00 65.00 65.0 USD
DESTINY’S KISS (Blyth ’21) TB Mid 37” (94cm) The nearest approach to a pink amoena so far.

Beards soft tangerine on white. Lovely ruffled blooms on well branched show stems. Makes small plants and good increaser. Delicious! Fertile. Sdlg X228-6: Lost in Dreams sib X Bashful Love

Inked In
60.00 60.00 60.0 USD
INKED IN (Blyth ’21) TB Late 38” (96cm) Having had the opportunity to flower many thousands of plicatas over the years and seen many more in other seedling patches, this stands out for me as being very memorable. The standards are white, lightly veined light violet over most of the area, shading deeper at midribs and towards the base. The falls are white with a 1/4” stitched edge of near solid mid violet. The really striking parts of this flower are the hafts and style crests. The hafts are near black, heavily shaded brown, spreading out on the falls to the ends of the beards. Beards are white, heavily tipped violet-brown. Show branching and should win at a late show. Good parent, though not easy. Sdlg. X268-6: sib to Margin Trader.
