Ann, Margie, Betty, Kelly, Chuck, Vicki, Christian (and one or two of you unsigned or off-list)  --  I didn't know there are so many plicata fans.  Thanks for all these comments, and particularly for the suggested crosses.  I'll probably act on those suggestions.  Also,  I think I may try crossing a couple of them with these (attached) two non-plicatas which have been bedeviling me because they have height, color and bud count, but have to be staked!   Both have my old 93R6 blue plicata in their background. so maybe something interesting could result.  --  Griff

Agreed. Of course, those are the reasons I prefer the other two. ;) And I realize that my personal taste doesn't coincide with current iris styles (no pun intended :)

Griff, as for me...............I like the 2nd one.  The color contrast is brighter than the other two, and is more likely to catch someone's eye even if it's way off in the garden. From the angle the photo was taken at - - it looks to have more ruffles and wider falls as well.
Since Tanzanian Tangerine is in it's background, (if it were me) I'd take the best two siblings and cross them. It may bring out a red plicata.

Here are the last 3 plicatas that I'll be posting at this time.  They are from the same cross as the last group.  --  Griff
