An accident, but I knew it was a possibility.  A case of two 
cultivars growing well and sharing space before they got lifted and 
separated.  For an iris grower, it's a good reason to never plant 
look alikes next to each other unless you are trying to ID an 
unknown.  I don't know about other folks, but sometimes I don't get 
to rearranging what's growing soon enough and, even with sufficient 
spacing to begin with, iris clumps can - and do - intermingle those 
rhizomes all too easily over time.

That's interesting.  SHINING WATERS has a whole different feel in 
bloom than those of more recent vintage.  In a way, the airier 
effect could be thought of as similar to effect of some daylilies 
when they bloom.
