  • Subject: [iris-photos] allegiance????

I just added to photos of "my" allegiance to this site. I took the 
photos this past spring. According to the book entitled, 1959 Iris 
checklist, under Allegiance on page 3; it states " beard medium blue, 
tipped yellow." Now, I am going to try and describe what I recall I 
saw on this bloom. Please bare with me as this was my first growing 
season and I do not know all the techinical iris terminlogy. The 
beard at first glace appeared to be yellow but, on closer inspection 
I saw the color blue. The best way I can describe it, is if you can 
imagine looking at the side view of a piece of carpet - the fibers of 
the lower (bottom portion) closet to the floor were blue, however, 
the upper ends of the same fibers (the tips of the fibers)were 
yellow. The yellow color was more pronounced than the blue. The only 
reason I remember this is because I thought it was so "neat". Please 
refer to my newly posted photos to have a better understanding of 
what I am trying to explain.
