"You mention a black Iris with a red beard that sounds delightful 
were can you get one.  I live in zone 7.  Never seen one that color 

A bitone with dark purple standards, black falls and RED beard is 
Keppel's WILD WINGS, which includes ROMANTIC EVENING in its 
pedigree.  Wild Wings has excellent branching, lovely form, with a 
bloom somewhat small for American taste, but the color alone attracts 
garden viewers like a magnet.  The foliage is attractive, clean and 
straight, a valued characteristic in the garden.  This year here it 
had no pollen, but has set healthy pods.

Keppel is breeding for red-bearded blacks, has introduced a few and 
will undoubtedly be introducing more in the next few years.

Neil Mogensen, zone 6b/7a near Asheville, NC
