Hybridizers' comment: This was my first registration . 'Eitje' in Dutch means 'Little Egg' refering to the colours of the iris. It also means 'Easy', 'Piece of Cake': quite accurate concerning 'Eitje' that was very easy to select, being the only surviving seedling from this cross. The shape of the flower is not perfect, but the plant is so healthy, the foliage so beautiful, with 3 buds on each stalk, it couldn't end up on the compost! It also had a slight chartreuse hint in the yellow spot, and the white beard was in very striking contrast with it. It also gives interesting babies, that you can see there: Eitje babies.

Commentaire de l'hybrideur: C'est mon premier enregistrement. 'Eitje', en Hollandais, signifie 'petit oeuf', et fait référence aux couleurs de la fleur. 'Eitje' signifie aussi 'facilement', 'les doigts dans le nez': ce deuxième sens étant tout à fait adapté car 'Eitje' était le seul survivant de tous les semis de ce croisement. La forme de la fleur n'est pas parfaite, mais la plante est tellement saine, le feuillage si beau, avec 3 boutons sur chaque tige, il ne pouvait pas finir sur le tas de compost! Il avait aussi un reflet charteuse dans le spot jaune, et la barbe blanche faisait un beau contraste dessus. Il donne aussi de jolis bébés, que vous pouvez voir là : Eitje babies.
