I have just updated www.Reticulatas.com with over 500 photos from 2020.  The site shows a lot of my work to-date; including parentage.  It focuses on 2n=18 Reticulatas since that's where I've opened up a whole new world of colours and patterns.  It's hard to know what is possible until it "magically" appears.  It's always a treat to see what opens for the first time each Spring.  In the past, working with 2n=20 species and hybrids, I'd just get more of the same -- more blues and purples.  I specifically tried to acquire collected forms with different genetics to what was in commerce in order to try to open up the expression in hybrids, but it didn't make a lot of difference.  More collected forms are available now than in the 80s and 90s.  At the time, White Caucasus showed promise, but since I was getting much more dramatic results from the 2n=18 hybrids I focused on those [see www.reticulatas.com/1998-101.html and compare results from the 98-OO and 98-NP crosses to the 98-YS cross which gave Holland Glory].  In recent years I have made some crosses (dabbled) with White Caucasus.  We now know Norman Steven's Halkis is 2n=18, and the Adiyaman Retic is 2n=16 (I'm surprised how difficult its been to get to bloom -- it seemed to do well for John Amand), and we have the stoloniferous Iris sisianica [which has been converted to tetraploid, but material has not yet been delivered -- hopefully Fall 2021; but it could then be 2 years before it blooms (i.e. Spring 2024)].  Exciting possibilities for the future...

Variety is the spice of life.

I look forward to seeing what SRGC members post in 2021 -- old favourites, collected forms, etc.

Not sure about this one.  It came as 'Halkis' which it isn't.  'Spot On'?  'Fabiola' ?

Thank you Maggie for uploading these photos!. My eyes are overwhelmed with so many little treasures! I only hope one day to grow these since most come from regions quite similar to mine. a lot of work ahead, starting with accessing seeds. We all hope that the pandemic will become harnessed and normal procedures can be re-instated. Meanwhile these beautiful photos are a balm.
