Adam, I and others have wondered about the
identification of this iris as Black Swan.
The color and form look more like a couple of
Gordon Plough's introductions--EDENITE or perhaps SWAHILI. The standards
look like those of EDENITE.
Black Swan was more of a blue-black or blue-purple
black without reddish tones. Compared to others of its vintage the falls
came off as jet black.
