standards. White falls give way to heavily laced subtle cinnamon peach
plicata washed and dotted margins and hafts. Zingy red orange beards
terminate in greenish stripes extending 3/4 way down falls. Strong, vigorous growth produces exceptional show stalks with 3-4 branches and
10-11 buds. Barry Blyth said it gave a splendid performance as a guest in

Fashion Diva
fancy dog (Black 09) TB Early-Midseason 33” (84cm) My
husky, Fancy, was tough yet beautiful and sweet. Her death on December

veins and rimmed apricot gilt. Bushy red orange beards set the falls
ablaze. Rapid growth creates massive clumps filled with well branched

Extravagantly ruffled and laced falls are palest soft pink white with
greenish texture veins giving a serene ambiance. A little fire is added
by white beards brushed red. Strong stalks have 2 branches and usually

Painter’s Touch
mambo italiano (Black 09) TB Midseason-Very Late 37”

claret plum bands. Expansive falls are rich, iridescent rose claret with

Sordid Lives is as colorful and twisted as the movie by the same name.
Pure-hearted white standards haloed in gold are in divine contrast to the
raucously colored and blatantly ruffled falls. Falls blend from white to
light yellow with centers wildly washed, mottled, and dotted rose magenta
to darker rose over centers leaving wide blended bands of off-white to
yellow. Hafts are veined and sanded plum. Add to it zany yellow gold
beards and you have an unforgettable experience. Strong show stalks

at lower, middle edges. White styles with yellow crests arch above bright
yellow orange beards. Well branched stalks produce 7-8 of these unique

There is no doubt the wizard lives up to his name. Wizard of Odds gives
a strong performance where other streakers have failed. Tightly formed
flowers are carried on strong show stalks with plenty of buds. Its robust
growth will keep its magic going season after season. No two flowers are
alike, not even close. The basic color is bright ruby red and bright gold
but applied to both standards and falls in whatever whimsical pattern the
wizard conjured up at the moment. Have a look at the pictures and you’ll
see this is one mixed up wizard. The pod parent, Pure as Gold, is a strong
rebloomer and while Wizard of Odds hasn’t rebloomed here, it has great
breeding potential for both rebloom and broken color. Try it and see what
your odds are. Sdlg. K89A: Pure as Gold X Infernal Fire

a star is born (G.Moorhead 09) TB Early-Midseason 35” (89
cm) We fell in love with this gorgeous creation of Gerald Moorhead’s
when it bloomed as a guest at the 2006 AIS convention. We wanted to
make sure that as many people could enjoy it as possible and asked him
if we could introduce it. He agreed. Gerald is working for dark brown to
black beards and A Star Is Born is a solid accomplishment in that direction. Standards are yummy mid champagne peach which is repeated over
the hafts and paler diffuse bands around pale butter champagne falls.
Spectacular dark reddish sienna beards are the piece de resistance. A
Star Is Born offers exciting breeding possibilities. These ‘Stars’ are presented on well-branched show stalks having 3 branches and 8-9 buds.

date with destiny (Black 09) Species
X - most closely resembles a very short IB Midseason-Late TB season 18” (46 cm) Date
With Destiny, along with its sib Alberta Clipper,
has the potential to add an almost unimagineable dimension to the SDB class and to a lesser
degree the IB class. Traditional SDBs usually
have one branch and 2-3 buds. On occasion one
will have 2 branches and 4-6 buds. The problem
has been that the later types tend to open multiple blooms on branching that is too close to
display them without becoming a bunchy mess.
In this respect, Date With Destiny overcomes this
problem. Amazingly, the foliage remains short
so as not to interfere with the flowers and wellspaced branching provides plenty of space for
them to open properly without bunching. Flowers
also remain proportionately small. The other
major effect is pushing SDB bloom time well into
TB season. I say FABULOUS! Classically formed
flowers have mid violet blue standards and
blended band on darker red violet falls. This
represents an amazing pool of genetic material. Sdlg. K297B: ((Echo Pond x (Gentle Air x

THANK YOU to -Keith Keppel for his help in
proofing this catalog to help
insure as much accuracy as possible in a publication with so
many entries.
and other fun things
We are very glad to once again say “Thank You” to our loyal customers for another prosperous and rewarding year. We are always very
aware that without you, we wouldn’t be where we are. You are our backbone. We are hopeful that gardening helps calm the nerves and jitters of
these challenging times and also that somewhere you have a little money
tucked away for a new plant or two. Flowers, like our companion pets,
help make life more beautiful.
Many of you have followed the trail that
our companions, our very much loved pets,
have made with us. On December 20, it was
a very sad note to have to say goodby to our
oldest husky, Fancy. It is a sadness for us, a
sadness of missing her and her gentle, loving
nature. We can’t be sad, however, that after
a great life of 13 1/2 years, she went to sleep
and didn’t wake up. There was no pain or prolonged sickness. As the snow began to fall on
December 19, I took this picture of her enjoying
great husky weather.
Nickel is also starting to slow down. It
seemed time to add a new husky to help keep
the property cleared of rats, mice and gophers. A new little husky girl named Kita, short
for Nikita so she doesn’t get confused when we
call Nickel, has been adopted by all the MidAmerica crew. Some of the crew are liking her
better than others. Cher thinks she’s a bit too
rowdy. Adjustments are a part of life, even for dogs. There may yet be
another husky added to the crew before you get this catalog. Cher and
Diva are doing fine, but like us, they get the winter blues. They’re ready
for spring so they can romp and play among the plants. Amazingly, these
low to the ground bulldozers cause more damage to iris stalks than the
huskys ever did.
Thomas and I are both delighted with how well some of our irises were
recognized in the awards system. We appreciate all the judges who took
their time and energy to grow and evaluate some of our creations. We
hope that they continue to please not only AIS judges but also the gardening public. We work toward creating hybrids that can withstand the
rigors of the everyday garden. Here is a look at those awards.
For Paul - Cook Douglas Medal for SDB, Cat’s Eye. Walther Cup for
SDB Bluebeard’s Ghost. Ben R. Hager Cup for Crow’s Feet. Devil May
Care was runner up to Sass Medal and Tingle was runner up to Caparne-Welch Medal. Award of Merit for TBs, Bold Encounter and Aardvark

were also awarded to BB, Crow’s Feet; IBs Nickel and Fire in the Sky,

Ghost, Wish upon a Star, Canadian Kisses, Big Blue Eyes, Hugs,
Pussycat Pink, Experiment, Gingerbread Trim, Fine Idea, Ghost Ship
and runner up Bright; and MDB Dollop of Cream. City of Gold won 5th

Bridal Icing a runner up. Honorable Mention for TBs Wild Angel, Discovered Treasure, Athens, Peace Prayer, Material Girl, Modern Woman,
Spiced Lemon, with Foreigner and Gallery as runner up; SDBs Leopard
Print, Scream, True, and Cub Cadet. Suspect was top AB. Saving the best
till last, Thomas had an amazing array of awards from the International
Iris Competition in Florence, Italy. Morning Sunrise won 1st Place and also
the award for Most Original Color. Power Point won 2nd place and also
the award for Most Commercial Variety. Last but not least, Peace Prayer
won the award for Best Scented Variety.
Thomas and Kirk added a lovely new gazebo to the garden. You are
welcome to come and look around a bit and then sit in the shade of the
gazebo and enjoy your lunch or snack and maybe a sip of wine.
As always, may your gardening bring happy days filled with loving
friends & beautiful flowers.
Paul Black & Thomas Johnson
Each spring there are many exciting new breakthroughs plus advancements of existing lines. I have a little space at the end of the catalog in which I can indulge my creative spirit and share some of them with
you. For more history, check the last page of the 2008 catalog.
Advancements in the aphylla and mixed chromosome derivatives
have developed faster than I ever thought possible. Most of these invovle
Dolce, Alberta Clipper, Silverberry and Good to Go and Amusing.
Q18D flower
and 3 branched
stalk - 19” tall
Pollen parent is
SDB Amusing.
Q34A - 23”
Q48B - 22”
Q67B - 24”
Each of these seedlings has a high
Q137B - 25” percentage
plicata heritage
which should make
them very exciting
to work with since Q18D - 19”
it allows the expression of many colors and patterns over them. Q68A is
a beautiful peach and cream glaciata, while Q137B is a
startling luminata. Q32F and
Q32F - 25”
Q67B are both very close to
MTB in character, and colors
are bright and cheery with
falls of Q67B looking very
red. Both are a result of tetraploid MTB X SDB parents.
The most interesting IB cross,
Q74, was a combination of my pink and
blue breeding in both TBs and SDBs. The
quality of this cross was very high. The
diversity of the genes is evident from the
variation of color within the cross.
Q68A - 26”
Q74 series
Why would I care about something that looks like Q29A?
It is a single seed from a bee pod on Suspect. Suspect
is a traditional aril-median (arilbred X SDB) cross which
so far has been stubbornly infertile. To get any seed is
unexpected and for it to germinate is even more unexpected. To be of value
it must have some fertility to move forward.
And now to my favorite bearded class - SDBs. I’ve
worked many generations toward pink standards, blue falls
with pink bands and the reverse. The results still remain a bit smoky but it is there
as evidence Q108A and Q108B. This has
been combined with plicatas. Seedlings
such as Q87A are showing up with pink
standards with hazy blue plic and white
falls with mauve pink bands and blue
plicata bands inside those. Other plicatas that were exciting are the colorful luminata Q95B out
of Trust in Dreams, bright orange bearded Q117D out of
Amusing, and maroon lined plicata Q111A out of Shining
Through. Q116E is a unique minimal plicata with wide gold bands from my
line of late blooming SDBs. It blooms at the end of the SDB season.
Please come by this spring and see for yourself what’s cookin’
