My Notes: I noticed in 2009/2010 while looking at Iris branching, which I had never done before, that this one has *excellent* branching and bud count.   I'm not that fond of it's color, and it's not much of a stand-out yellow in the garden.   But because of it's branching, I want to hybridize with it, but was unable to set a pod on it.   May try again, or may try using as a pollen parent.   Because of it's branching though, used in a flower arrangement with other colors added, it is very nice!
