> Hi, Cherly, I grow two out of the four that you mentioned. It is not
Calinte, sorry if my spelling is off, It is a deep maroonish/ brownish
redaand very talyored flowers. I also grow Struttin High. If you have a
Schrieners catalog from 2000 take and look and you will see why I don't
think it is that one. You did not mention Mulled Wine but Mr. Peters did. I
do not think that it is that either. My Mulled Wine has more compact rounded
flowers and there are several other things that make me think it is not M.W.
M.W. Is a Keith Kepple iris and still very much a favorite of mine. I hope
this helps. Remember one should not guess at a name just to feel like they
were able to give it one. Enjoy it for what it is and that is a very pretty
iris. Brice Rose from a very HOT Ca.
