Note: starting in 2014, bee seed to be sold is not included in 'Bee Seed'.

Of the 1185 bee seeds in 2014, 532 were from F1 "Just Blues", and the majority of the remainder were from higher level crosses involving Iris danfordiae.

In 2014 over 7,000 seeds were planted (6034 + 1185)

 

 

 

The hybridizing statistics on the following pages have not been updated because they don't have the same significance that they once did.
