Somewhat Unintentional Experiment

I planted these two pots of iris seeds in the Fall of 2002. They germinated Spring 2003. This picture shows them in February of 2004.
The cross was 'Clown Pants' X 'Rosemary's Dream'. They came up so thickly that I figured I couldn't plant them all in the ground. Time got away from me and some died of crowding, rots and such until... fast forward 10 years... they're still sitting out there, STILL in those same pots. Only the most stubborn, toughest few remain. I REALLY ought to put these into the ground when Spring comes.
And I'll have to get pictures when I do.
