This flower is a very dark, rusty brownish red.  Not trying to be gory, but
I would liken the color to dried blood. Not even a hint of magenta or purple
or violet in the standards and falls.  I'll obviously need to get a better
look at the haft color and the beards on this iris before I can narrow down
the choices any further.  I believe Sunday morning would be a good time to
inspect this iris.  I feel kind of odd jumping up into a raised be in the
very front of the post office to measure and examine a flower while the
curious look at me as if I'm crazy.  I guess I need to get over this shyness
if I want to be a true iris fancier. :)
