Positive TBGDN On May 19, 2007, TBGDN from Macy, IN wrote:

This was a pleasant surprise in an iris planted less than 10 months. From a single rhizome planted last July 2006, it has formed six increases and bloomed beautifully twice this past week. My experience with arilbreds has been very limited to non-existent until last year. This one in particular is very attractive and quite distinct.
