SIB: Re: Purple & gold irises

>what are those purple iris with the gold insides called?

	If they are beardless irises, they might be I. chrysographes, a
	40-chromosome Siberian which is native to China and Burma. Actually,
	there are gold streaks in the falls with variations of some hybrids
	showing absent the gold lines. Some garden cultivars are almost black.

	It is a lovely series and fairly easy to grow in gardens...it is
	branched and is a stand-out in the garden. One of mine is in a bog
	garden and another is in regular garden soil.
