I was really disappointed with this iris when I finally saw it in bloom.  
Definitely not a winner on the show bench.  The second year, I had a clump of 
about 10-15 stalks, and, THEN, there was no question.  From a distance, it 
was distinctive--a real knock out.

Still, I complained when it made the dykes list (hang my head in shame!), 
UNTIL I remembered how we are supposed to vote the dykes.  Garden 
distinction?  That it has (when happy).  I'm guessing that it was blooming in 
clumps when seen at that convention.

BW in BG KY where J. Beetles devour the iris rebloom, rose bloom, etc..
