Re: OT: Quiz



I am going to guess Valentino.  I have seen huge flowers on it and it does have that yellow point at the end of the beard.

Subject: [iris-photos] OT: Quiz


At the Fredericksburg Area Iris Societyâs harvest dinner on Saturday, there were about 17 irises on display brought in by various members.  As soon as I entered the hall, one stalk stood out --  a large-flowered red.  When I saw its identity, I was amazed.  Iâve grown this flower myself and never saw it this fine.  The falls of the top bloom are 7â across.  I asked Doug Chyz, who had brought it, if I could glean some pollen.  He said, âTake the stalkâ.  So, here it is (attached).  Itâs not a glamour photo  --  the falls have been removed from a spent bloom and the top bloom is marred from travel, but I just wanted to present it as an example of what this cultivar can look like.  Anyone guess its name?  --  Griff
