TB: HIST: Black Swan

  • Subject: [iris-photos] TB: HIST: Black Swan

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.
