It looks a bit like Enchanted Mocha but the standards have too much lavender. Is it an SDB?

Here's the pix from the other day...I never got back out to take anymore, so there *should* be quite a few *new* ones this morning.First though....the one I asked you to "guess at" was *supposed* to be Howesie (John Burton)......but Shrug! , there's definitely an error someplace! I was hoping someone would recognize the little thing ! I'll need to send Ginny an e-mail, and see if she recognizes it. I will wait a bit, until the rest of last years order blooms, to see if the mix up is on my end,....but, I don't recognize it as anything that I ordered Shrug!

Those are beautiful, Arlyn.

I received a wrong iris from them before, and I know a few other people who have also. Shrug! I hope you are able to find out what it is, as the colors are very pretty.

Great colors going on Arlyn. With as many irises that get sent all over the country, it's a wonder there are not more errors. It is annoying though if you can't find out what you have. Your Baby Tears is doing great!

I'm sure Little Hiawatha IS correct, Lucy ! And, Thank You, again !! If it wasn't for the generous "Iris Buddies"out garden wouldn't be nearly as nice !!

The beds ARE starting to get some color, Tom ! Most all the SDB's have been there long enough, now, to be really nice sized clumps (quite a few will need division this year, in fact), so there are "multiple days" of bloom from each one Thumbs up .

Thanks for sharing the pictures, Arlyn. Gorgeous as always, and several I haven't seen.

No rain today but it is back later this week. And it is warm again today, no jacket needed. A couple plant sales this Saturday I hope to attend, and an out of town dinner that Mrs Red will attend with me that evening. We don't get away often, so it will be a welcomed short trip.

And you are right about iris buddies...they're awesome. But I suspect down here they are called iris bubbas. Either name, I've been blessed by them too and greatly appreciate them.
