My favorite Iris SEEDLING Lemon Mist X Skyhooks

Bonne Terre, MO

I hybridized this flower about 1998. I call it Butter Billows( but its not registered) . Its parents are old Lemon Mist and Skyhooks. This plant has 7 buds rounded ruffled white falls with a touch of butter yellow on the edge, yellow standards and white horns sometimes with very pale blue tips.
Its a good grower.Not my favorite seedling at first but has won my heart over the years with its nice constant blooms and good growth and evne ruffles .Hardy and flowers are wind resistant. STem is a little thin for all the flowers .Usually has 2 to 3 flowers at once.

very nice form considering parents are older. How many buds? If hardy & a pleasant flower, why not registered?
