Bloom report:

From: Tmilchh@aol.com

Dear Mark,
      Yesterday I had a new Iris, (It was named "Footprints") bloom.Today we 
had high winds, so I decided to pick it. It is probably an SDB. It is 
chocolate brown with lighter standards, bright yellow beards, darker gold 
style arms tipped chocolate, but the most striking thing about this iris is 
that it smells just like chocolate.  
     The only problem is that Footprints is supposed to be violet with a 
black spot on the falls; so this is not Footprints.  I got these small 
bearded irises from Judy Echart (spelling ?) from Iris-talk , so I need to 
contact her, maybe she can identify it.  It is a good increaser as there are 
many small rhizomes in the clump.
     This is my first iris to bloom, that I saw. I looked in the back bed of 
TB and found a spent bloom of an SDB that I missed seeing.
     Last week I visited the garden of Hugh & Mary Thurman. Thay had  quite a 
few medians in bloom.
