Thank you, Mitch for sharing that exquisite bloom. I planted a three tiered water garden with patches of Iris in strategic places from stock shared by a wonderful friend. When they bloomed, without any pre-planned effort on my part, they were all color co-ordinated in tones of fuscia, blue, pink, cream,deep purple, and lavendar which made a splendid display with the old fashioned Lilacs in the shade of an Arizona black walnut tree. Now everything I plant is with this color scheme in mind and I look for Iris that will be highlighted by the rest. Thank you for this introduction!
