I bought this iris in 2005, and it's bloomed this year for the first time. To my surprise, it came up with 4 Standards & 4 Falls. I first thought it was an optical illusion, but counted them several times to be sure. There is another stem coming up and will see if that one does the same. I also have a photo that I will upload as soon as possible. I have over 100 varieties of Iris, and this one is the only one that has gone "freak" on me.
