Wow Kent, that is an amazing Orange ruffly iris. Where ever did you get that, I haven't seen it before, and would like to put that on my list for next year.

Hi, Tom. I bought it from Rockytop Gardens in Tennessee a few years ago. I think it is still listed in their catalog.

It's a wonderful iris, far and away the best orange TB that I have grown. Deep rich color, nice form, heavy substance, and excellent growth habits. That's not an easy combination to come by in orange TBs.

Thanks Kent, your picture blew me away, I've been looking for a nice ruffly orange self, and when I saw this one, I knew it was what I was looking for. I'll have to get that next year.
