From my limited experience, this appears to be a very much underrated iris. Of all the new flowers that bloomed this year for me, Solo Flight had the most beautiful form and substance. The color is pleasing. And it has a very unique fragrance--sort of reminded me of the smell of calomine lotion but sweeter. That might sound weird, but the fragrance is nice!
