Hi Linda,
You're very close! ;0) Iris junonia was the pollen parent of the other seedling I sent. ['Honky Tonk Blues' X junonia]
The one in your picture is 'Rosalie Figge' X aphylla 'Wine Red' and the foliage is amazingly clean here too. I was just comparing it yesterday to a different nearby F1 aphylla hybrid and the difference in leaf spotting was dramatic again this year. It doesn't make any pollen here, but sets seeds pretty readily [hint, hint]
Hope you have a great daubing season!

Instant clump with 3 stalks on MARIPOSA WIZARD, planted fall 2011. I
hope this one continues to do well & reblooms here. On the left.

The seedling on the right is one of Tom's interesting species crosses -
ROSALIE FIGGE X I. junonia (?I hope I'm remembering that right). Lovely
lush color and healthy foliage.
