Hybridizer's Comment: I like "Beghina" very much. It's an italian variety hybridized by Gina Sgaravitti during the sixties, but never registered. It's color is grey with beige undertones. Crossed with 'Sky Hooks', I hoped for a grey variety with blue horns. The result is different, but nevertheless, this iris is a pleasant one.
'Kir' (Sylvain Ruaud, Enregistré en 2003) Semis 92/01. TB, 90 cm, Floraison hative et moyenne. Pétales jaune chartreuse doré; bras du style moutarde et mauve; sépales jaune chartreuse doré, mauve diffus sous la barbe; léger parfum sucré. "Beghina" X 'Sky Hooks'.
Commentaire de l'hybrideur: J'aime beaucoup "Beghina". C'est un iris italien crée par Gina Sgaravitti dans les années soixantes, mais qui n'a jamais été enregistré. C'est un gris sur fond beige. En le croisant avec 'Sky Hools', j'espérais obtenir un gris à éperons bleus. Le résultat est différent mais malgré tout très joli.
