Black Iris Sprouting!

My black iris (Iris chrysographes) is sprouting!  I planted five seeds but this is the first, and hopefully not last, to sprout.  I kept the seeds in the fridge in moist paper towel for about a month to stratify them.  After planting this one sprouted in about two weeks.  This variety of iris is semi-aquatic and can't be allowed to dry out as a seedling.  Hopefully within a year or two I'll see the first flowers.  Growing things from seed sure takes time!
