Jack, there is no color chart specifically for Iris.
There are color charts from the RHS (Royal Hort Soc.) in GB, but they are very
expensive and as such not used by the casual gardener. Keith Keppel has
at times used these in registrations.
Descriptions are an 'art form'... seeing is believing.
Welcome to the Iris world,
Chad in Los Gatos CA next door
there a color and or pattern chart for iris identification? I'd like to be
to take a written description and match it with likely candidates.
I see are quite exotic, but not really
Jack (neophyte from CA)
