After approximately two years (shy less than one month) my iris experience has been less than good. 

This is 2006-01, from two seedlings.  Today, Sept. 21,  is it's first bloom so I'm not saying it's a rebloomer.  This cross was made in 2005 and any bloom in 2007 & 2008 was wiped out by a freeze.  This iris is not a perfect in any way, even without the tear in the fall or the butterfly.  The butterfly may make it better!  Two blooms open. 

It isn't quite an amoena.  There is lavender on the style crest and a touch of beige along the edge of the standards-just at the top and only in the center (a little over an inch.)

In the bud it appeared to have plum falls. 

The next picture shows the branching.
