Sharon, it could be a seedling.It is not uncommon for a bee pod to
ripen and the seeds to fall into its clump.They grow there until the clump is dug
and divided, and someone gets a big surprise with this seedling which can’t

Can anyone identify this bearded
iris? Instead of one of several TB's I purchased, this grew up instead.
The owner of the iris farm cannot identify it. The flower looks like a
TB, but it is shorter than some of my IBs. The buds are very close
together. No purple on the foliage and no scent. I tried to match it up
with But Beautiful (which the falls, only, resemble) and English Charm (which
the standards, only, resemble). The beards don't match anything. They are
reddish in the center, tan in the middle and white on the end of first blossom
but were pale lavender on the end of the second. This is my first use of
"iris-photos" so I'm not sure how this works.
