I got my plant from Don Spoon a number of years ago. When it bloomed, I too
wondered about the name and if it was correctly named. I coresponded with Don
who assured me it was indeed Black Andromeda and the same as his and that the
name reffered to the black colour on the falls. He was very certain that it
was the correct cultivar. It does fit the registered information and pedigree.
I too expect something with Black in the name to be a solid black, but that
is just a convention. I've had people expecting the cultivar "Violet Dawson"
to be violet when the name reffers to a person and not the colour.

Yet, Chuck grows one named BLACK ANDROMEDA that looks exactly as one would
expect the iris to look, based on the parentage in the R & I. (And I can't
imagine why it would carry the name BLACK.)
If Will is correct, where did the iris come from that Chuck grows? Chuck is
there any chance Chet sent this to you as a seedling, before it was
introduced to the public?
Linda, I'm afraid this is one mystery we will never totally solve. There
are others! <vbg>
