Well, Donald, whatever it is, it's a beauty.
Some irises are novelties, but some have enduring beauty. I'd say this is
one of the latter. -- Griff

Marx, '49. Not sure though. Just what color is 'plumbago blue'? Also
described B1L which is light blue (I think). This bloom is certainly not
what I'd call light blue. It's very blue, but I'd say it tips slightly
beyond medium blue toward dark blue. Nothing was mentioned about the white
streaking either. It's random and variable, but is present throughout the
falls and standards. If true this would be an OB- type AB. It was in loose
bud last night and is new for me this year, so I cut the stalks and
them inside to finish.
