AND here is the rest of the story straight from Jan:
Sorry I took so long to get back to you. The iris is not named Black Beauty, that was just a title for the contest. It is a black iris, but I could not tell you its complete name. It was purchased from Wal-Mart about 6 to 8 years ago. I love my Irises but I do not pay close attention to names. Sorry I could not be of more help.
