I have been on a "Find Green Iris" mission since I fell in love (well back in love) with Irises. This is the first plant I had bloom that supposedly had some green and guess what, It really does. The shoulders are an olive green. But in the right light even the standards take on a greenish (versus yellowish) tone So this has all been much to my delight but there is more. The flowers are changelings. Mine started out with much more blue on the falls and then slowly lightened up and have more of the yellowish-green color. In summary - Beautiful and unique colors and the markings are stunning. Also, the beards are an interesting brown tipped with purple. This took 2 years to bloom but good things come to those who wait, in this case!
