I certainly wouldn't go so far as to say I hate the form in the photo, but if the form improves when it can bloom without frost, this one will be drop-dead gorgeous! The coloring and pattern are right up my alley.

Has a bit of frost damage on the standards but I really like the coloration and patterning. Been working towards a double banded iris, probably will have it in a couple more generations. Can't think of any other iris with this coloration and patterning, especially in rebloomers?
