Glad you enjoy it young ladies.
Dee My previous camera Canon was already broken one year ago but I could still use it (now it has to go for repair). I bought another one as a back up. Wanted the same but they do not do that. So I had to buy a Canon EOS 1000 that I use with a Canon Macto lens EF-5 60 mm. I have to buy a magnifier as powerful macro lens are very expensive.
That the tool but in my opionion a good pictures depends on the way you are using the daylight and I use racket light, or shadows, and the setting have been made by a professional photographer according what I am doing. But light Dee is very important. Have a walk and check the way your irises look in the morning, in the shade, in the evening and play around trying to catch what the light enhances.

Hi everyone,
Could you please let me know if therie is another thread besides Anita"s one about hybridization between bearded and species iris.
Your help will be appreciated. I am looking for information regarding this kind of hybridation and results.
Thank you

C., I don't think there is any such thread. the only cross I know between bearded iris and species iris is Paltec. A bearded iris 'Edina' crossed with iris tectorum. Maybe Anita or some other species person might know better.

The very last tall bearded are bloomong. Here Bragadoccio and Olympiad. Gypsy Romance still in bloom and Tangerine Sky a last bud. The first irises are having seed pods.
Spurias irises are in full bloom and some siberians already bloom, some are going to -hope so), the last to come are ensata irises, the water irises are also blooming now.

Clusiana You might try that type of cross. John has one with a bearded iris & I. verna, but he just grows it as results were inconclusive. The chromosome counts make it difficult. You can always start a thread looking for particular information.

We are amatures at it. I. verna was crossed with an SDB as the 'count' is closest. He hasn't tried it again. a bit of trouble growing the vernas as we are north of its range.

C., back when I found out about Paltec, I searched and searched for info about bearded irises being crossed with beardless, and found almost nothing. It appears it's extremely hard to do. I would be glad to start a thread for you, but I doubt we will get any responses, but if you want me to, I will.

So Lucy, you and John made a cross with verna and a bearded iris, but aren't sure that's what you got?

Myself I have tried a cross between several Tall Bearded with first a species (John Wood) and then with a Siberians no pod developed.

Even a cross on Night Mood either way took me 5 years for one pod to take...can not say much about the end results.

I even have trouble with Siberian, and Japanese crosses and found out the reason finally. You take the pollen and let it dry at least 24 hours and then apply and you will usually get a pod.

This year I am taking a Siberian both ways with John Wood to see if this will work with they pollen being allowed to dry for 24 hours or longer...

Never be worried about putting out questions there that we have not seen, you might not get one reply but you will never know unless you ask and try C:) Thank you for asking, made me think.

Thank you Polly
Do as you wish. I thought that you could may be start a thread about the matter on a wider range. Not only about crosses between bearded and species but about crosses with different species (pseudatas are crosses betwwen pseudacorus and ensata right?); I mean any cross using a different type of iris. Thanks for he search.
Lucy very interesting comments as always.
Dee 5 years is a long tme...Thank you for your comments.
I will do my best to come back with information on my side.

I can tell you one thing on the pseudata's the hard part is the pod parent which is either Gubijin or Chance Beauty with a Japanese is very hard as first Gubijin usually blooms several weeks ahead of the Japanese, what Lee Walker, Chad Harris and Carol Warner says you need to keep the pollen of the japanese over for one year and take it back to when Gubijin is in bloom.

To the best of my knowledge from the reading in winter is that you can not two pseudata's and get another pseudata, nor can you take it to the peudacorous which is so invasive in most parts of the USA.

Hopefully when I get back the Japanese will be bloom and I can save some pollen for next year.

When I return I will be really busy first digging the balance of the Siberian Clump orders, then planting my veggie garden then I have a landscape area in town complete with supplying the plants to do on the 17th....

Then start digging the orders for iris in mid July...

Seems this year has been extra short.

John crossed the verna onto the SDB. The seedlings have a bread which one would not expect. Sent a plant to Jean Witt & she thinks not the mix, however it doesn't look like any SDB we have seen. We don't even grow tectorum as it is a bit tender here.

I was just wondering... has anyone in the iris hybridizing world worked up a "crossing polygon" of iris species as has been done for lilies?

http://www.liliumbreeding.nl/polygon.htm

Seems like something like this would answer a lot of questions about the compatibility potential of iris crosses.
