I need help identifying this flower. In the same year, I bought 4
orange irises. This is the only one that has opened so far. The first
picture, I took before it had completely opened. Then the stem fell
over so I brought it inside. I think the second picture shows right
before closing. It's a sad picture but shows the beard. I have
include the AIS descriptions. I think I have decided that this flower
is Fresno Calypso. Am I correct? Also, if anyone has photos of the
other 3, I would really appreciate seeing them.
