Probably the machinations of growers, but twice now I've planted this iris (from two different vendors) and every time it's come up a rich, dark indigo, not anywhere near orange.

This is my favorite iris because it doesn't need any care, it comes up with new fresh foliage every spring, and the colors are unreal. I have alot of flowers in my yard but this is one that I am in awe of. Georgeous.
