Valentino by Painter taken at the 2009 National in Kansas City. Looks
pretty close to me.

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?
