This iris made the rounds on the other website about 3 years ago.
SIL just sent this to my facebook.I had to let her down easy and tell her its not real.
Anyone agree with me?

Uh -- yeah!!! Photoshopped to death! It's making the rounds again -- a friend just emailed me a couple of days ago with this picture and asked me "is this for real?"

Some day someone's gonna breed one like that -- won't that be amazing?

Irony there.
Arent breeders trying to breed a true red? That one has all the red removed,not to mention the blue tweeked to the point of madness.

Looks like an escapee from Miami Vice, the original television series. Hilarious!
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

If it were real, I would want one! I doubt that anyone will come up with anything close in my life time, but it is a neat picture.

Like the "boy who called WOLF" - when we finally DO have one of similar colors (and it may take a nuclear explosion to do so)

noone will believe it ~Jan

Could do without the fake photo. Real irises are more fun.

This was created by someone who does gorgeous bloom photography on Flickr and does a few fun tweeks to colors in several of them. Once others lift the photos, that's where people get confused.

we should not propagate this photo or any other that felt is to be enhanced i spent hundreds early on over crap pictures like this only to discard the iris for the crap it was some catalogs are this way research any iris you think you like and look at any photos you find ask your friends about it there are literally hundreds that are so like another that thye should have found the compost pile look for photos taken in the sun be aware if the area around it is in or out of contrast, lighter or darker thathere are signs
