PSEUDACORUS HYBRIDS
Hybrids with participation of Iris pseudacorus. A number of such hybrids are known, eg. with Iris ensata, Iris laevigata and Iris sibirica. The two hybrids we have grown, come from the English Pseudacorus hybrid Holden Clough, which could be the result of an Iris chrysographes x Iris pseudacorus cross. This cultivar in one year suddenly produced some spontaneous seeds. In the  USA this seed yielded the hybrids Phil Edinger and Roy Davidson, and in our garden we got the variety Berlin Tiger. From a cross of Berlin Tiger with  Iris versicolor Mysterious Monique we got the variety Appointer. - Pseudacorus  hybrids are mainly vigorous plants, but seedlings grown from eventual seed  nearly always look like low quality editions of Iris pseudacorus.

A special group among the Pseudacorus hybrids are the Pseudata hybrids (Iris pseudacorus x Iris ensata) and the  Eyeshadow hybrids are the most interesting among them. The can be easily produced and do not suffer from chlorotic leaves to the same extent as many other  Pseudata hybrids do. Eyeshadow hybrids were produced and named as a group by Shimizu (Japan), when he had found a special variant of Iris pseudacorus (registered as GUBIJIN), which could easily be used for successful crosses with Iris ensata cultivars.  The resulting plants are large flowered and produce well branched stems. The following six pictures show Eyeshadow seedlings we have grown from seed sent by Hiroshi Shimizu. Our intention was to produce fertile Eyeshadow hybrids  by treatment of seedlings with colchicine.
