Subject: Re: [iris-photos] Boss
I believe that this iris is too red to be Boss Tweed. The
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
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.
