No, Will, that isn't HELEN COLLINGWOOD.

There appear to be several irises masquerading as Helen Collingwood in circulation with relatively small nuances differentiating one from the other.

The first place I examine on a bloom when trying to determine if or if not HC is upper lip of the style arm. I have yet to see a clear HC photo or bloom in the flesh that did not have purple "rays" radiating through the upper lip. Maybe some with more so than others, but always.

As a point in passin', that Pries feller slaps my wrist every time I say "always", but he ain't Southern. Were he, he would understand always means "Close enough for Southern work".
