Betty, I think I have seen it bloom only twice, once in 2002 when I selected it out for looking at again. Then again last year 2004 after transplanting in 2002 and lining it out. I don't think I paid attention to anything other than form, balance and general beauty the first time. I thought about environmental; cold and drought (which we have a lot of), but the rest of plant looks so good. The flower does intrigue me. It looks like the standards wanted to fall open but never do. It is a large flower. It reminds me of the skirt Mexican women ware when they are dancing. Very free flowing. If the chipping continues thou in the years to come I might just toss it. Make a few crosses on it and with it to see if it is passed on.

Is this from the blue pigment just not filling in properly or is something else going on here.
How many years have you seen it bloom?
Could it be weather damage? Sometimes I've had irises look like that when there have been some light freezes or when the iris has stayed in the bud for longer than usual.
