GYRO is one of my favorites, which I have grown for some years.  It is a much darker iris than it appears in most photos I have seen, including my own, attached.  Nevertheless, I post them to illustrate, by the first, the form of the flower, and, by the second, a closer approximation of its color.  Actually, the closest to its true color are the shaded petals on the right edge of the first photo.  The second photo, a rather ungainly closeup, shows the red-violet underlying color.  For a really true representation of the flower as it appears to the naked eye, I suppose we might try photographing it in the early morning before sunlight strikes it.  --  Griff
