Re: What causes 'washed out' iris color?

I'm sorry to say I know very little about the Iris.  It was given to me.  It receives equal light to the entire plant.  I wonder if it's possible to force color as with Hydrangeas by adding a fertilizer or a rusted tin can in the dirt by the roots?

  What variety?

  Could it be that half the plant gets enough full sunlight
  to cause a color change, and the other half does not?

  What is the pattern of the color differences - both colors
  in the same flower, or in separate flowers?
