thanks Adam.  I did see S in B growing last week and took this photo.  I think I can get a start from the gentleman that is growing it. 

Codicil has not bloomed yet, but I think I will move it to a new location this July.  It is fine and healthy.

I hope the start of Sheer Ecstasy grew for your relatives and was the correct iris.  If not, let me know, as the one I grew did bloom and it is SE.  I can send it along if needed.

Will you be going to Lansing this weekend?  Should be fun.  Thanks and enjoy the iris season.  It has been quite good here.  Cheers,  Peggy

Hi Peggy,

Nice pictures of irises there.  I would think that all three of them resemble 'Superstition' more than 'Study in Black'.  I recall 'Study in Black' to be more tailored than your photos show, and also it has no faint white striations next to the beard.  

I do not grow it, myself.  Our show is in two weeks, and if I see it there on display from any of our club members, I could request a rhizome of it for you to compare, if you'd like.  :-)

How is 'Codicil' doing for you?  :-)

Does anyone grow both Study in Black and Superstition?  I obtained S.in B. from HIPS two years ago, but when it bloomed it looked just like Superstition.

Any thoughts on ID?

Thanks, Peggy Harger-Allen
