Thank-you for the parentage. (98J4 is lovely too by the way)

I can certainly see the 'Patina' in it, but I'm surprised such a rich brown could come from such a brightly colored parent as 'Barocco'.

You wouldn't happen to know 93I4's fate would you? I just can't get it out of my mind. Is there any hope that we might see it in person someday? I really do think those colors are stunning! It's one of those irises that I keep going back just to gawk at. :)

Thanks again.
