While I must agree that Fogbound isn't the most eye-catching iris in the garden for its colours, the plant is always impressive for the quality of its bloom. When I split up the clump last year, I took the time (and the space!) to line out 7 single rhizomes in order to continue using it in my breeding programme. At first, I used it as a pollen parent but then discovered that it will also set seed---apparently not as easy to do, but worthwhile as I feel that it passes on more of its qualities this way. Quite astounding to see the list of registered plants that descend from Fogbound! Polly, my thanks for this list, which I have copied and will tuck away in my hybridizing files. I presently have a French Cancan X Fogbound cross that I have high hopes for!
