When I originally grew this iris in Alvaton, in the early 90's, it had
a chrome shine to it and the haft marks were a bit more brown. It
really got my attention. Could have been the soil or the afternoon
shade. I've grown it here and it looks much like the one in your
photo. I've had a hard time accepting it as the correct
iris and have bought it from a couple of places trying to determine the true

clear on beard colors at times and my memory is failing a bit.
suggestion would be to buy anything suggested and grow them side by

the beard, etc.. You should be able to identify it by the time you're
ready to introduce anything from a cross.
The form on it was better than HOM and the branching not as good or
consistent. In my garden.
