It is pretty. This is the same one that was showing blue on the monitor?
Bugs started to eat on some of mine about two weeks ago and then stopped. Maybe the mantis scared them off? ;-)

Subject: [iris-photos] REB: IMM X Violet Classic stalk
Faults (very slow growth/increase, tight branching, low bud count), but
still pretty. Opened third unaffected bloom after several frosts, cold
enough to kill tomatoes to the ground.
Betty, STAR GATE seems to have come thru frosts ok, but the one open
bloom that didn't get beaten up by heavy rainstorm is being eaten alive
by cucumber beetles - too shredded to post a picture, especially after I
squashed all the beetles. ;-(
IMM is also opening new blooms unaffected by frosts - blooms nice and big.
