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.
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.

Sdlg. 247-1-0. TB, 36" (91 cm), E-M
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.
