This is a first year iris in my garden in 2007. Whenever I first see a new bloom I try to remember my first impressions. In this case the first thought I had was "Grape Kool-Aid" with 'sparkles' dusted on it. With the disastrous freezes in early April I was concerned about this one, but it pulled through with minimal damage. I gladly give it a positive review for this factor alone! And its looks aren't too shabby either. The following information is taken from the AIS Check List database: "(Tom Johnson, R. 2002), Sdlg. R130A. TB, 35" (89 cm), M "Diamond-dusted slate violet, style arms with gold sides, F. with bluish cast around beard; beards orange, tan orange at end; pronounced spicy fragrance. N19A: (Sultry Mood x Conjuration) X N4A: (Sea Quest x Proud Tradition). Mid-America, Roris 2003"
