I Received this in a trade, with several other named
irises, marked 'Burgundy'. I had thought that to be
the name but after seeing the description for
'Burgundy' (Barr, 1903?) I think that was just a
description of the color.
Here's what I do know about it: It is 25" tall, and
bloomed very late, after all the other TB's were done.
It has a small rhiz, this is first year bloom, & is in
partial shade with maybe five or six hours of sun a
day. Only four buds off this first blooming, but oh!
were they stunning!! It has quickly become one of my
absolute favorites in the garden. That velvety wine
red color picks up the sunlight like stained glass and
just glows with it. And its rust colored beards are a
nice compliment too.
So now I am hoping to try and ID it and I'd welcome
any suggestions as to irises to consider. Ideally I
could narrow it down to a few varieties to try growing
with it to see if there is a match. Thanks for your
input and expertise!
