This bloomed in a pot today, unmarked and unknown. Is it Arab Chief? Does anyone recognize it? HELP!! If there is a chance it is Arab Chief I have to ID it and save it. It was supposed to be somewhere else and dead but I am a disorganized goof on occasion so anything can happen. Not to mention the fact that the iris fairies tend to move things on their own because they think it is funny. I swear there are irises in places that I never, ever put them! Whistling Whistling

It is purdy! I love it but I really need to know what it is. I don't normally go into panic mode but I was trusted with some fairly rare irises, then I killed them and now this...
It could however be a Cayeux instead of Arab Chief but I NEED it to be Arab Chief. *Blush*

The one and only photo I could find of A.C. had an orange beard and was darker but otherwise looked similar. Six rows down...
