This is Iris varigatea regina. A subspecies of Iris varigatea. I
beleive it used to be considered a seperate species. The stems are a
bit weak and the stock can droop. I have used it in crosses to MTB and
I'm now in my second gereration and getting some interesting things
with stronger stocks and wider flowers. Some with steaks on standards
and falls. Several with white standards and falls with dark almost
black veins on white ground.
