Tall Beared Iris.... what am I doing wrong??

20 years ago

For 3 years I have been trying to cross several of my iris with NO SUCCESS... The seed pods set and a few even begin to swell but then............they just turn brown, rot and fall off..

I've got almost 100 different colors, all tall bearded. Even the best pod parent in the iris world...... Edith Wolford........ and even SHE won't set seed. But yet, I see seed pods in other gardens that are probably naturally pollenated. Are the bees boycotting me?
