Brown Lasso is another one of those older iris that just tickles me
when I see it bloom. It is the only BB to have won the Dykes medal and one
of only 3 non-TBs that have, the others being Elmohr (arilbred) and Star Woman
(IB). I never grew it when it first came out because it
was expensive when I was raising a family. But now I honor it with a
place in my garden (and even use it in hybridizing).
