Hybridizer's comment: The cross G2/01 just happened by luck... I only wanted to create space-agers that wouldn't be too tall and would be strong. Sibling to 'Charlie Chaplin', 'Rose-Linda Vasquez' and many others.
Commentaire de l'hybrideur: Encore un G2/01, qui fut un pur hasard... Ma volonté était de créer des iris avec éperons, pas très hauts, solides, et vigoureux. Frère de 'Charlie Chaplin', 'Rose Linda Vasquez' et les autres.
