Margie  --  I missed seeing this seedling when you first posted it,  I guess.  There isn't enough color contrast for me, but the form is fine and what I can see indicates that you might have some beauties out of this in the next generation.  I'd suggest trying Barry Blyth's CHINESE TREASURE, for one.  It has a red beard and should give you good color in the falls.  --  Griff

Speaking of iris where the backside of the falls is a different color.  Here is one of my seedlings that bloomed this year. (Maiden Bloom)  3 photos of it here.
I haven't had a real chance to evaluate it yet, but it fascinated me.  The first day when it opens - -  the inside color of the falls open up sort of a watermelon color.  By the second and third day it fades to an orange.  In one of the photos you can see (one of it's flowers which is about to open) that the undersides of the falls are the same color as the standards.
I also was impressed with it's flaring falls. For it's maiden bloom - it was triple socketed.  So far - with a total of 9 buds.  And was about 30-32 inches tall.  Growth at this point is steady and moderate. Both parents are tall - - so I'm thinking next year the height will probably be taller - - up to 36-38 inches.  And I don't know what else may change.
