Subject: Re: [iris-photos] Boss
I believe that this iris is too red to be Boss Tweed. The Checklist
Boss Tweed (James McWhirter, R. 1992) TB, 38" M. Ruffled honey tan
brown, white area under gold beards, slight fragrance. Arabian Tapestry
x Role Model. Cottage 1993
Your picture shows a red-brown iris with a violet area under the
beard. When mine bloomed it was much more honey.
So I went on-line to Google Images and typed iris + Boss
Tweed. It pulled up a mixture of tan and red-brown irises. Mine
looked like the honey-tan with white under the beard. Yours looks like
the red-brown with violet under the beard.
