Good Looking is stunning - I measured 7" across on one of mine - dusky lavender - outstanding form, vigorous, a real beauty. Blooms mid-late for me in Western Tennessee. Looks good against Light to midium blues, pinks or dark purples.

Good Looking is exactly that. A gorgeous flower that grows extremly well and makes a wonderful clump. Good stalks and great branching. One of my top 10 favorites in my garden of 300+ irises. Be sure to add it to your garden, too. Highly recommended!
