I just remembered one more that I grew. It was a space
age sometimes flat iris called My Darling
Scatterbrain. When I got it, I didn't know why it was
called Scatterbrain but as I grew it I understood wht
it meant. I recall it grew very well. Sometimes one,
two or all three of the standards would dropped open.
It seemed to me that it wasn't a matter of weak
standards flopping open but the standards literally
opened up like a fall. There were sparse beard
bristles on the standards but not enough to call them
actual beards. Anyway, I have attached a pic of a
normal bloom and one that opened all the way. Quite
