Cool, Linda! That's a very fine photo, so if the flower was even
prettier, it must have been very nice. Your photo, along with the
other one I've seen, confirms that PV is really a bicolor. The
description that Char Holte sent me (thanks again Char!) goes like this:
(Richard Ernst, R. 1993). Sdlg. F147A. TB, 34" (86 cm), ML.
"Cool lavender violet blend with brown veining, F. with pastel brown
rim; beards yellow, tipped white; ruffled; slight sweet fragrance.
Afternoon Delight X B106: ((Millrace x San Leandro) x Ringo). Cooley
Maybe this has already been done, but it might be fun to post photos of
the iris that are most different from their official descriptions.
Maybe next year when I have some photos myself. Given what you say in
your other note about PV fading, I might try it in part shade.
Thanks for the photo. Thanks for the input on TIME WILL TELL too.
I've never seen the purple stalks, but the flower looks good in the
photos. Doesn't seem to be widely grown, though. Maybe others are
growing later versions too. SMOKIN looks similar to me, very nice.
Seems to have less of a dark rim on the standards, slightly more
flared falls with more disciplined ruffling. But that's just based on

quite a bit prettier than this. But you get the general idea...
