Howdy All,

I have potentially an identification problem?  A friend of mine bought 5
Iris retic 'Violet Beauty' and gave me one of them.  Hers are in flower and
are another of these purple retics (I have to admit that a lot of these
named retics are purples with white flashes that I can barely tell the
difference apart).

However, back to the story....... She has her 4 in flower at the moment.
Mine is also in flower and mine is completely different to hers. My one is
MUCH paler and a bit over half the size.  There is absolutely no comparison
between the two.  I have attached pictures of mine which are pretty
accurate for colour, and give you an idea of how delicate the bloom is.  I
know that growing conditions can make a bit of difference...... but
complete difference in size and huge difference in colour?

I'm inclined to believe that I have a ring-in but I thought I would mail
this off to ask if anyone has 'Violet Beauty' and can identify whether mine
resembles it or whether it should be much darker and larger (more like
'Purple Gem' etc)?

Thanks in anticipation.
