   Thanks for your quick response. I know what you mean about the 
dark iris not taking very good pictures. Just a blackish blob.
I figured the bright blue beard would be a dead giveaway, whether it 
was or was not supposed to be there on Superstition. 
I wonder where Wal Mart gets all those misnamed iris anyway? Wouldn't 
it be nice if they DID use the right names. Strange as it may seem, 
as ugly and dried out as they look, the iris still come up nice and 
strong in the spring (never the fall, like the real breeders stuff)
Talking about Walmart, I got the most lovely iris in a pot there a 
few days ago... beautiful deep rose pink. I just could not resist it.
Didn't have a name. but I am going to try to take my first picture of 
it and post it here if successful.
