TB: root beer!

Greetings from Carney's Corner,

Betty,   I cannot believe that someone is inquiring about an iris 
that smells like root beer!   A few years ago I purchased a 
Schreiner  70 iris named DUTCH CHOCOLATE.   The first couple of years 
the plant had a hard time growing.  Two years ago it bloomed having 
put up two bloomstalks.  When I smelled it, it was such a shock and 
thought it was somewhat of a chocoalte fragrance.   This last year it 
bloomed much better and had larger flowers and definitely smelled 
like root beer.  Every person that visited us while it was in bloom 
has agreed that it indeed smells like root beer.  Give me a few days 
to check my catalogs and I will let you know where I find it.  It 
gives you such a funny feeling to have a flower smell like root beer.

The flower itself is a beautiful chocolate color, a self, and the 
falls and standards are smooth looking.
