HERE COMES SPRING!

 HERBSSPECIALSIRIS COLLECTIONSBEE PODSROSS ROAD IRIS

BEE POD SEEDS  | FROM THE 2017 GARDENS

What you get: 10 or more seeds from the same pod parent (may be from more than one pod) + instructions for germinating the seeds in the refrigerator + an organza bag which is perfect for rinsing and keeping the seeds until they sprout. Plant now and your seeds should sprout in May or June. There is no guarantee your seeds will sprout, but pods from the 2017 gardens have had a good germination rate by this method this season.
Iris Seed Germination

Remember that the hybrids  that result from growing these seeds may or may not look anything like the pod parent shown in the pictures. In all cases, only the pod parent is known, and the pollen parent is unknown. When a seed pod develops from natural causes, it is often known as a bee pod. The seeds have inventory control: most have two sets, many only one set, and some few more than two sets.

TB - Historic - Early Season
Description from Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1937: ...while classed as one of our superior reds, it carries a bronzy overcast, being regarded by some as a red blend. At any rate, 'Indian Chief' is one of the most popular of the newer things, and a credit to Dr. Ayres, its introducer. The velvety falls are deep blood-red, blended with bronze, and the standards are considerably lighter in tone. A large flower, quite tall, and very well branched.
