Re: Just in from seller

Pat, I am very sorry, but page 82 of the *IRIS CHECK LIST...1990-1999* has
the entry for CHILI PEPPER.  It contains the exact description both Betty
and Jan have given you for the variety of that name which decidedly does not
match this photograph.  The Check List is *the* authoritative source for a
description of an iris.  The description given is adequately clear.

The photo, despite the seller's assurance, "Pat, going by your picture and
the R & I discription, that is Chili Pepper" does *not* agree with the R & I
description of an "oxblood red plicata" nor is it something that would have
come from the ancestry given on p. 82 of the Check List.

This flower appears to have the dominant amoena factor (Progenitor derived)
in the violet bitone with Lycopene pink expressed clearly in the standards,
not a trace of plicata marking, no part of the flower at all oxblood
red--even the tangerine beard is very far from oxblood red, a deep, almost
brownish-toned red.  The beard of Chili Pepper is described, per the Check
List, as bronze in color.

The is a quite lovely pastel flower and deserves to be properly
identified--accurately.  The form and clarity suggests it is a quite recent
variety and a very good one.  You are fortunate to have such a lovely garden
subject and fine variety.

I assure you, this is *not* CHILI PEPPER.  Hopefully, someone will identify
it correctly for you.
