NOT 'Apricot Drops'

  • Subject: [PHOTO] [iris-photos] NOT 'Apricot Drops'
  • From: Laurie Frazer laurief@paulbunyan.net

Hi All,

A friend sent me this iris labeled 'Apricot Drops', which it clearly is 
not.  Now we are both confused as to this little lovely's true 
identity.  I thought I'd toss these pics onto the list and see if 
anyone has any possibilities we can investigate.

I'm not even certain which class this one fits into.  It's larger 
flowered than the MTBs and smaller flowered than the majority of IBs, 
but it's growing as tall as most of my TBs (which is to say it's 
growing within IB height, which is where most of my TBs end up).  This 
iris's beard is an interestingly difficult color to describe, actually 
- sort of an orangy pink that ends in an orchid/ lavender tip at the 
very end of the beard.  That same orchid/lavender color is then 
expressed on the fall itself as a light flush just below the beard 
(more visible in real life).  The rest of the flower is a nice orchid 

Anybody care to hazard a guess?
