Seed parent: Moraea aristata
Pollen parent: Moraea tulbaghensis
I was very anxious to see the flowers from this cross. I was hoping for the big blue eye of M. aristata on a bright orange background. But instead, the flowers are all pale yellow-orange with a dark purple-black eye. Form b of this cross has aristata-style speckles on the backs of the tepals, the other forms don’t, but otherwise they are all identical. I did some crosses between them to see what the F2 generation will look like.
