I was going back over my list when it hit me that one iris was out of place. I am talking about Paul Black's 2014 introduction "Fantasy in Pink". I got this from the club rhizome sale. It was marked as Fantasy....; but as it turns out this was wrong. I was on the site from where most of the club irises were dug this year and noticed that they had "Phantasy in Pink" in their catalog. Looks like someone made a boo boo. I fixed my plant list. The "new edition" does have a lot of lacing going on!

Certainly a lot more "fluffy" than Fantasy in Pink!

If I had known, I would have passed on it. Oh well. Let's see what it does in the Spring. It should bloom based on the size of the rhizome.

You may find that you really like it once it blooms. Time (and spring bloom) will tell!
