Yes,Gg, Immortality is a white remontant and Chantilly a yellow and pink with crinkly edges to the standards, which this light one has, just. Discarding all except the light one after I have enjoyed the display. (The dominant reflowering gene will now be in the offspring)

Got 23 seeds germinated from this cross, but I have only limited space to grow on to maturity.

That is a shame I hope you find some where to plant them.

I only planted out 5 seedlings, going to keep the pale one possibly, the others to the compost bin in the sky.

That's such a shame have you thought of swopping seeds with any one on here that adore Iris .

I have sent bare rooted Rhizomes to friends in the past, but never seed. Would you like some rhizomes? They do need a sunny position, and hate winter wet.

Yes I would love one thank you that is very kind of you to offer, I have just two the one of my mums which I years ago I put on the edge of the path as it seems to like it there the other is futher up the garden on the edge of the path but so far has nt flowered and I have forgotten what colour or what its name is I only noticed it the other day . I will send a pm with my name and address I would be willing to pay postage if you can not afford it.

3Pb, Are your Iris in the shade, they won't flower there easily?
Not the time to dig up Iris when in flower, six weeks after flowering till September is the ideal time.

No on the shaded side of my garden they are facing south Siris .
Yes that is fine with me thank you Sirus I take your instructions on board too.
