Looks like I am going to have to place an order next spring. I would love to make a collection of these and play with breeding. I can imagine adding Iris imbricata which has bracts that are large and inflated like balloons. Normally an unattractive feature but if they were purple who knows. Thanks for the info.

Robert, I have two cultivars that fall in this category.  'Just Call Me' has purple brackets.  Not as distinctive as OS but still always there.  'Echo Location' has purple brackets and sets pods with a distinct purple coloring. 

<<TBs with purple bracts below their flowers>>
Will look for pictures, but I'm not sure I have any.

Its bad to have poor recall but I trust the collective memory of this group can help me. I remember seeing TBs with purple bracts below their flowers but cannot remember the cultivar names. Does anyone know about these and have photos I could use in the Iris Encyclopedia? I know the species I. purpureobracteata has this character but I am looking for the TB hybrids that developed this independent of that species. Can anyone help?
