Title: Re: [iris-photos]TB:Inside Track:Color Saturation
Oh Betty this is so true.  I have moved iris from bed to bed in my own yard and found shade difference enough to question what iris it is!  It is always a wonderful surprise when they bloom for the first time! :)

Since Keith is new to the world of irises, I think it's only fair to point out that the color of an iris, exotic or not, is subjective at best.  And, as often discussed on this forum, in real life and real time, color is effected by many things, including soil components and temperature.  Higher temperature will water down or lighten the darkest of colors.  

People often think they have received the wrong iris, simply because the color is not as deep or saturated as a picture they have seen would indicate.  Judges argue this point at shows.

Hydrangeas are not the only flowers effected by the ph of soil.
