I will try American Classic and Orinoco Flow for you and send you the seeds if it works....they
both should be blooming at the same time.  Orinoco Flow is always tall bearded height in my
garden and the stalk height doesn't seem to be affected as much by the cold as some other
irises.  This particular stalk of Orinoco Flow measures 36 inches....the flowering Copatonic
behind it is 39 inches.

I'm glad you posted this lovely photo, Sandra.  This DM winner from
England has been one of my favorites and has performed extraorinarily
well here.

Incidentally, I have noted registrations from it in TB height range. 
I keep intending to cross it with 'Charleston' or 'American Classic,'
but have not yet gotten pods from the few attempts.  With the classy
quality and vivid contrast of 'Orinoco Flow' I would expect some good

I also like the name--the song, recorded I believe by Enya, was one I
found fascinating.  The "baptismal" images in the video were likely
unintentional, but vivid none the less.  I'd love to have used the
song/video combination in a Confirmation class had I had opportunity
to teach one.
