This is another iris I got in 2007 from Mid-America Gardens. It is a 2007 introduction by Thomas Johnson. The official AIS Check List (at present) does not have much data about it. However, in the 2007 catalog it describes "big bright orange beards" and subdued plicata markings. Also noted is Sdlg. TW222B: Marksman X Brash. In my own words, exceptional!
