Hi, Margie, I took that
picture in my garden yesterday morning. I really don’t know how to
describe that iris. I consider it a fancy plicata, but geneticists have another
name for it. It has streaking on the tan falls that blend into a solid burgundy
band. It may have some light dotting. If I have time I will check
it again in the morning.

Thank you Francelle for hunting
down that photo and sharing it with us. Would you classify it as a ringed
or rimmed luminata-plicata, or not. ( I can't make the close-up details on
Oro Valley, AZ.

[iris-photos] HYB: TB Plicata/Luminata seedling
This is the seedling that Kathy
Chilton liked at our show last Saturday. It is from Carnival Song X Fancy
Woman. Everyone seems drawn to it. I would describe it as light tan
with a burgundy wash. The overall impression is a reddish brown, and
since I don’t like brown irises, I’m not crazy about it. It
was very shy of buds this year, like most things. I’m keeping it to
see what it do in future years. I have about 18 healthy little seedlings
from it by New Leaf. That should be interesting next year, though I
can’t expect New Leaf to help with the bud count.
