Subject: [iris-photos] TB Sky
This is Sky Search (Gaulter
'92). It is not a great picture of this iris, but I wanted to capture the
height. Can you see 55" 1/2? Do TB's grow this tall? Perhaps I didn't measure
it correctly. I placed the beginning of the measuring tape at the bottom of
the plant and followed it up all the way to the top of the flower.
Unfortunally, I was amazed by the height and didn't measure the flower itself,
which was in fact very big too. The color is a relaxing pale blue with a
white beard. It grew fast and developed a couple of stalks with 8 buds
each. I got this iris from the Descanso Gardens in Los Angeles.
