Hi Sharon:  
Magic Hope(Gibson, '84)M. 36" is described in an old
Cooley's catalogue as, "a ruffled and laced plicata,
yellow-orange ground, burgundy-purple stitching,
deeper on falls.  Edged orange. Yellow tipped beard." 
My own comments:  I *hate* this color but the form is,
by my standards, absolutely perfect.

Rocky Mountain High(F.Foster, '81)M. 34" heavily
ruffled and fluted white.

Fortune Teller(Corlew, '86)E. 32" plicata with "warm
white standards and violet stippling on the falls." 
The photo show that the stippling is very slight
around the edge of the falls, a lttle heavier on the

Jeweled Starlight - "light yellow standards, white

Congratulations(Keppel, '82)M. 35" F "Pansy-violet
falls, deeper in center, paling toward the edges,
beneath blue standards flushed violet on the midribs. 
Blue beards tipped yellow. Slightly sweet fragrance." 
I'm assuming that this might be your Congrats.

All of the above information came from Cooley's 1995
catalogue.  I'm sorry I don't have knowledge of, other
than it's name, or a description of Merry Madrigal.

Hope this helps you!

Carol,  in up and down central TX, 84 degrees and we
need rain! Where Donald is in Eastland, it is in the
50's after being past 100 yesterday.  Irises do have
to be tough to grow in all our climates!
