I, too, have observed that some irises have particularly intriguing buds. I
grew a Chet Tompkins intro, SWEDISH SPRING, whose lime green buds opened
into a yellow/violet bicolor flower a la EDITH WOLFORD. Neat trick!

However, no way -even deep in the heart of Texas - is an iris with pink
buds going to turn out to be SONG OF NORWAY. My son drew a rhizome of SofN
as a raffle prize at the local iris auction several years ago. It turned
out to have orange buds (and flowers).
