I know that a lot of daylilies have teeth but what about irises with teeth?
This seedling (maiden bloom in May 2012, parentage unknown) showed "teeth" on every bloom (it had seven blooms)Thumb of 2012-12-16/Tiganja/aaef89

I wonder if this is genetically inherited or just weather related? What do you think?Thumb of 2012-12-16/Tiganja/4a93cf

I would say genetic. It's a very nice bloom! Do "mommy & Daddy" show any of this ?...Arlyn

I would think genetic too. Is this sometimes referred to as lace?? I have a few that have this. One of them is Lace Legacy. I really like your seedling. Its very pretty.

Arlyn, I am sorry, I do not know the parents so I do not know if mommy or daddy show this.
Marilyn, I have never heard the word lace before, thank you for telling it to me. Lace legacy is a very beautiful iris.

Iris having ruffles and lace seem to be common with the newer cultivars. These are beauties to grace any garden.

Here's a good example of lacing. If you look all along the top where it does look like teeth, that's the lacing.

Yes, I would say the standards are laced as well as ruffled.

irises
ruffles come in larger 'waves' rather than the short edges of 'lace'.
