WOW GEE WHIZ (P. Black 21)
SDB 15” (38cm)
It is amazing to have three prime selections from the same cross. This luminata plicata has old gold standards washed darker brass overall and interesting green midribs. Mid gold styles lead to bold yellow luminata type fall spots that have light tan plicata markings becoming mid cinnamon toward edges. The lower half of fall is dark mahogany with a gilt gold rim. The big burnt orange beards will make you go ‘Wow Gee Whiz’. Great from a distance or up close. Strong growth.

SDB Midseason-Very Late 15” (38cm)
Here’s another in the expanding line of late blooming, multiple budded and branched SDBs. Classically formed flowers have smoky light violet to buff pink blended standards and light pink to violet styles. Mid violet blend falls have cream hafts with dark plum veins that extend downward. Dark orange beards make it even more outrageous. Three well-spaced branches have 7-9 buds.

OUT OF THE ORDINARY (P. Black '21)
IB Spec-X Early-Late 19” (48cm)
'Out of the Ordinary’ has been an important stepping stone toward achieving late blooming, multiple budded and branched SDBs. Its diverse parentage is evidence of the breeding possibilities it provides over the entire bearded spectrum. Palest gray standards are washed pale smoked butter. Dark red purple falls blend lighter toward the edges and are intermittently and narrowly streaked light violet – a hint of broken color. Well-proportioned stalks have 3 branches plus spur and 12-14 buds.

NIBBLE (P. Black '21)
SDB Late-Very Late 15.5” (39cm)
With very deliberate intent, I’ve been able to extend the bloom season for SDBs well into the TB season and created stalks with 3 and sometimes 4 branches with 8-14 buds. All this is made possible by keeping foliage short and slightly lengthening branches so all flowers can show without being crowded. It is a new path and look for SDBs that I think gardeners will like. They will be a knockout on the show bench. ‘Nibble’ is a nice muted corn yellow blend with paler fall centers and big mid yellow beards. Three branches carry 9-10 buds.

MOUSE THAT ROARED (P. Black '21)
MDB Midseason-Late 7” (18cm)
It may be small, but it has a big impact in a clump. It is another variation on a plicata theme reaching back to ‘Ghost Ship’. It is a luminata but not in the traditional TB style luminatas by having darker fall veins rather than lighter. The upper half of white standards are shaded mid slate purple with butter edges. Startling white styles peak out from between them. Falls have bright yellow throats blended to white then washed light to mid violet to edges. Chlorophyl lines streak alongside beards turning to mid violet and darkening to edges.

Definitely not the usual violet and white plicata. There is an interesting dialog between the redder dark plum standards and the white falls widely plicata banded mid violet blue with red plum hafts. Big golden beards end with a neat lilac shadow.

What a sight this monkey is with a wonderful luminata pattern. Standards are cream heavily washed mid khaki as are the styles.

The falls lower half is washed/sanded mid brown and narrowly banded tan gold. What a sight! Very showy clumps. Excellent parent.

FAMOUS (P. Black '21)
SDB Midseason-Late 13” (33cm)
'‘Famous’ is a minimal plicata that is wonderfully unique. Dark mahogany standards are lightly laced and rimmed mid tan. Cream styles have mid mahogany ridge and crest centers. Dark yellow throat and hafts of falls are plicata lined and sanded black mahogany. The lower 2/3rds of fall is dark mahogany black. Big bright beards are two-toned marigold to yellow. So far it has been a difficult parent.

The accent here is on the round, lightly ruffled and strongly flared falls.

Stalks are distributed evenly throughout the clump, so flowers are never crowded.

Definitely a top pick for those who love pink irises. Two branches and terminal normally have 6-7 buds.
