■(TB) 'Crunch'

2014, Burseen

'Crunch' (Tom Burseen, R. 2013). Seedling 010-2297A. TB, 34" (86 cm), Midseason to late bloom. Standards rose-purple, washed purple midribs, fine gold-brown edging; style arms gold-brown; falls majolica-yellow (RHS 168D) overlaid rose, heavy pansy wash below beards; beards bronze; pronounced sweet fragrance; ruffled; wide. 'No Fear No Peer' sibling. Burseen 2014.

See below:



From Burseen’s The Lab catalog, 2014: CRUNCH, 34", M L. $60.00. The pollen parent of Cow Patty, Maggie Beth is the pod parent of this very different iris. Alas, Maggie Beth is proving to be a very good progenitor of different and imaginative progeny and this crunchy creation is a good example of such offspring as rose purple S are washed purple at their midribs while being finely edged golden brown; majolica F are overlaid rose, have brown washed edges, and dark pansy bursts below big, fat, fuzzy bronze beards, and this distinct creation has nice modern flowers too. Seedling 10-2297A: Maggie Beth X Dallas Done Right (two other siblings from this cross are also being introduced this year. No Fear No Peer is similar but can anyone believe Cuttin ZZZ's is a sib also? And, several more fran this cross are under consideration also)
