I agree with you. I just checked the registry and it does not
match. The blended standards and the beard seem to be okay but the falls

I took the picture on a garden trek so it probably
is incorrect. I have not grown this variety myself.
Hope someone else has a correct picture.

Maybe the label in the garden was

discribing her iris?
