Moraea MM 10-39

Seed parent: Moraea aristata
Pollen parent: Moraea villosa “with blue-green eye” (probably villosa c)

As has happened with other crosses between villosa and aristata, the flowers look mostly like a larger version of villosa. The tepals are almost pure white.

MM 10-39a has a blue eye and orange center.

MM 10-39b has a lemon yellow center and a blue eye edged in purple on the outside. Form B is the closest I’ve come to getting the aristata eye pattern on a larger flower, so I’m doing more breeding with it.
