have not verified the ID on these photos.
They were taken at a show where a classification committee went over
them and then a team of judges looked at them again. I figure that Albuquerque’s Aril Society show is the best
place to find correctly named cultivars.
Part of that description confusion could also be the lighting at the
show. Let me play with the color a
little and see if some of the veining comes out. It is definitely a greenish color.

Subject: Re: [iris-photos] AB:
questioning the ID especially. It looks right for what might come from
the registered parents. But the registration description reads
"Willow green with red purple veining; brown beard." That
description would not conjure up what the picture shows to me. I'm so
pleased to have the AB photos being posted for a second reference. I'm
also glad to see that some that aren't readily available are still being grown
somewhere. I hope they don't get lost.
