OK. I will post some pictures of "reds" that I took myself. But
they are all home. Will get them tonight.
I had thought of something else since I sent that last message out.
How large are the flowers? Some reds are huge (SPARTAN, MARAUDER, RED
VALOR). Yours could be a small growing TB, or even one of the IB or
BB's. CRANAPPLE is another possiblity (picture at home too). It is
one of the smaller iris (height and flower size). It is very
saturated red; more of a solid self rather than TRD's lighter stands,
deeper falls.Also less purple.
Are the leaves large? Or more in proportion to the plant?
I only have a few of the smaller iris, but the leaves are definitely
skinnier than TB's.
