I'm liking the one called Midnight Embers.

I Like that one too Tom. It has dark cranberry coloring instead of the dark purple I see in so many dark irises. Lovely!
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

Did you notice that Phil has the lettering for "Midnight Embers" in black and all the others in white? Not only is it harder to read, but is distracting! Just my 2 cents. (it IS a slow time of the year Big Grin )

Nicodemis irises grow well here. I can't bring 'Delphinium Sky' closer to see if there is any turquoise.

I don't usually care for the real dark ones, but Midnight Embers is really nice!
