GYPSY QUEEN (Salter, 1859) IB, ML
I have these out by the mailbox. I never water them or provide any care. Small flowers.
This is GYPSY QUEEN.........................Very dependable Historic. Thrives!
This is the real verified Gypsy Queen. Please note there is no rosy color to the standards at all, just the old gold color and the falls have very dark, almost black veins unless sunlight is shining directly through them as in this photo.
There is also a highly colored rosy looking 'fake' Gypsy Queen iris and you have to be very careful to properly identify your iris as the genuine Gypsy Queen. It should have old gold standards without any rosy color and the veins on the falls should be almost black unless sunlight is shining directly through them.
