It looks as though it could be Dusky Challenger to me.  Dusky Challenger is very late and always cooked in Phoenix heat.  In five years I never got a decent flower from it.  In most places, people have better luck.

Just when I thought just about everything finished, this beauty opened in the "Gyro" row.

But it is not Gyro I don't think b/c beards don't fit. I also  have Swirling Seas, North Pacific Seas, Grand Old Opry and Rosalie and those don't seem to fit either.


The beard is really yellow-orange in throat, and dark blue on tip, w hairs tipped silver or gray. Veining extends to end of beard.

Great substance.


Grand Old Opry comes the closest, but description doesn't say anything about the yellow in throat. And I don't think I'd really call this a soft lavender orchid, yet the pix in cat. looks like the color.

Ruffled soft lavender orchid; self beard. Winterscape X Sugartime. D. & J. Gardens 1987

Anyone grow any of these and have a pix to send.???

Or any other iris that sort of looks like this??

It's still blooming now, if more pixs will help I will go take them And work off line w someone that might can help.


  • It's a tough iris to break falls off. I keep trying to get one intact to get a better pix of beard but it just breaks snaps. It's like it is glued w super glue.
