Positive TBGDN On Feb 18, 2006, TBGDN from Macy, IN wrote:

ZING ME: (Barry Blyth, R. 1990). Sdlg. V42-A. IB 20" (51 cm) EM. "S. cream to creamy lemon; F. creamy white, lemon edge, large brown circular area 2/3 down; beards brown, bushy. Jazzamatazz X (Embassadora x Evening Echo)., Tempo Two 1990/91." The preceding information was researched from the American Iris Society. Grows a little short here at 16-18" but makes up for height with colors. Nice combination of cream, white and brown with a strong lavender influence. A very good grower, hardy and quite attractive!
