NAVAJO JEWEL is beautiful when it blooms here, but frankly shows no hint of
turquoise or green, just a really nice shade of of pale, pale blue. John
Reed's description of SEE WORLD is perfect as it grows here. A neutral
color for an iris if there ever was one. And don't acquire ROYAL TARA with
its description of 'uranium green' expecting green either. I don't know
what shade uranium green is, but it's sure not green as I know it. The
effect of RT is cream, with light yellowish tan markings on the shoulder and
in the heart a bit. It's a pretty plant that LOVES the heat and sun here.
I moved it to a cooler spot where it didn't get baked and the soil retained
moisture longer. It wasn't nearly as happy, so it got switched back.
