Thank you all for the great pictures and ideas for oranges.  Griff, I am looking for a little darker orange, but I will start with what ever I can produce right now.  I bought orange impact and planted it about 3 weeks ago.  The pictures look promising, but won't know how it will fare here until it sets it's roots and starts to show off!  So I am crossing my fingers on that one.  I am off to search for Wild West Wind and Feu-Du-Ciel and Gratuity.  I think McKellar's is a little light for me. I really appreciate all the insite from everyone.  You are all a world of information!  Have a great night

First off, I am looking for a picture of Unyoro, Too Too Ripe, and Wild Frontier if anyone has them, I would greatly appreciate it.
Second, I am in search of a good solid growth orange iris.  I love the color of TN Vol, which bloomed lovely this year, but the foliage and growth rate of the plant habit is extremely puny.  I have it growing in 2 different places where other iris are thriving and it just seems to be slow and small.  I have Voltage, which is a little better in growth, but the color is a little to gold for what I am looking for.  Any suggestions?  Thanks for any help that you have.
