I recieved this iris as a bonus in 2004 and planted it in the same bed as the rest of my "cool colored" iris. While most of the others have long ago showed their colors, I've had to wait for 3 years for this one to bloom, and this year it finally did. I was well worth the wait. It's a beautiful purple & white stand-out in the bed.

This is new in my collection this year and its first year of bloom. It is very attractive in bright sunlight when viewed across the yard. Unfortunately it dosen't photograph well in bright sun. I find it difficult to rate a plant I like other than positive.
