Hi Pearl, Hi Colleen,
This English Charm was sent to me by Schreiners, so I'm pretty sure it's true to it's name.  This was it's first bloom for me, so maybe next year it will look different, and then again maybe not.  Arizona desert heat and soil may play with those color pigments some.
So far it has not been a good grower (only one increase for me) AND so far no rebloom on it.  I'll see next year whether it strengthens or fizzles as it acclimates to our climate.
It sure is pretty though.  :-)

Margie, are you sure about the name of this one?  I ordered this iris because i wanted an apricot amoena, but your picture looks like a totally different iris than the  one pictured in Shcreiner's catalogue. I know the pictures in catalogues are sometimes deceiving, but you can usually see the resemblance. If it is the same iris tell me how it grows for you. It's supposed to be a rebloomer. Have you had it long enough to see a rebloom?  Pearl
Hi Margie
Surprised at the paleness of the falls on your photo, always a lovely rich apricot for us. Has it ever rebloomed for you?
