Nice looking iris. Strong and clean and masculine. Hope it reblooms. It would be very distinct.

Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: better shot of dark brown bitone
Been talking with Adam, offlist. Sent him this shot and decided you
all might enjoy it. This was taken by a better photographer that I, with
better equipment. Posted my shot 6-13-11.
Thing is, the foliage behind it makes it look dinky little, and it's not. This was
shot in the swampy, north-facing slope, facing up to higher ground. It's
actually above average height for a TB. And, yes, the falls are that dark,
especially newly-opened. I had said before it had clean hafts. Not quite true -
If it behaves well enough, I will probably register it as Jerry Swann, for my dad.
I promised him any iris named for him would be appropriately masculine. He's 90
now, so I want to do it while he's still young enough to enjoy it.
