I love your iris photos! What is the name of the large pink blend iris on the left side of this picture? I would like to find it for my order this coming spring. I already have Bold Vision. Thank you, shirleymp

I'm not sure which one you mean, so I'll identify all of them for you. On my left as I look at the picture is a purple blend named ENCHANTER, by Barry Blyth. And directly behind it is my favorite pink, PICTURE BOOK by Joe Ghio. Then on the right is a pink/apricot/lavender blend (taller one) that is either LA SCALA or TEMPESTO (I think it's LA SCALA, but they're right next to each other and only half of the bloom is in the picture). And then in the background behind it on the right side as I look at it is a truer pink, DANDY CANDY by Richard Ernst.

I hope I have this right, and if you look these up here in the database hopefully you'll find the right one. I did have a little trouble finding ENCHANTER two or three years ago when I planted it, and I believe I finally found it at Napa Country Iris Garden.

Hope this helps!

Nope, I've changed my mind -- I think it's TEMPESTO rather than LA SCALA. I just looked them both up and LA SCALA definitely has purplish standards, whereas TEMPESTO has much more of a blend with a little more orange in it.
