The leaves are pretty stiff on this strain they even curl under, whereas the other strains of this same kikyo are small, weak and thin.

This is a I. nil Hanahubuki cross, I have to find the tag on this one to see what I crossed it with., some do not take, each grain of pollen makes a new cross, so each seed capsule has 6 seeds or less, then you can imagine how many varieties can come out of each seed when doing the growouts. Not easy to stabilize, some crosses do not even take, so it's back to the drawing board.
