Hi. I noticed a lot of you in J-Land were showing beautiful photos of Irises which are in bloom this time of year. I wanted to show you an iris that my sister Therese bred. Yep, she bred this herself. She cross-pollinated a white iris and a burgandy iris! How it came out YELLOW I don't know! It is her first cross and is five feet tall!
Now she wants a name for the yellow iris. Go ahead and submit a name in the comments section. The submitter of the winning name will get some of her hybrid yellow seeds as well as some blue iris seeds you see in the photograph.
Speaking of the blue irises, no, she did not breed them, but she has just crossbred them with the yellow ones (she uses a Q-Tip!). She is hoping that this new cross will produce irises with a blue top and a yellow bottom. Then we will have to have another contest, lol. They should be striking!
Anyway, back to "Name That Flower". If you have an idea for the yellow iris, please put it in the comments.
Love, Krissy :)
