'Astra Girl' X "PBF/RM"

Although this seedling didn't quite turn out like I'd hoped... it is a pretty good specimen for PBF (purple based foliage). It also got some of the "red-margin" trait coming through "PBF/RM" from Iris suaveolens var. rubromarginata. "PBF/RM" is the garden name for a seedling I have that is from [('Kupari' x 'Rosemary's Dream') X ('Kupari' x Iris suaveolens var. rubromarginata)]. I'm hoping to eventually get an iris with all purple foliage. Wouldn't that be too cool!
