Neil, Take a look at the JI database for 'Osay Canuc'. At one time I tried to track the lineage but got sidetracked.

You'll see other ensata SPX as well.

I think that is just wrong in the database. Registration does not show it being a cross.

There is an iris, Paltec, that is believed to be a cross between bearded iris Edina and I. tectorum, and is considered a species cross. That's the only cross I know of between beardless an bearded.

However, Japanese do cross with pseudacorus, making those beautiful new pseudatas.

Christy Hensler has crossed some siberian and Japanese

Thanks for the clarification Polly and for the great link. Christy has an interesting take on plant hybridizing. Wonderful results.

Time to bring this back up. This is the third bloom year for my cross Japanese Harmony X Fourfold Pink. It has settled into the form I expect to see, much better than its first year. I am working with just this one seedling that I numbered JHFP-1. This year one stalk had a branch with one bud, so three buds total. I keep hoping for more!

A second seedling was culled the first year for being too tissuey.

I noticed that this particular bloom look a bit weird with some kind of "floof" in the middle:

When it was fully open I felt like it was April Fool's Day. See what appeared:
