What is your favorite color of Iris? I know this is tough to pick but what if you had to pick only one color?

With the risk of annoying you with my undecided answer: it really depends on the shades, tones, any markings (complementing or not) etc.
I'm mostly drawn to white or dark purple/blue-ish (either with some yellow)

I like to have something going on like lines, stripes, blends, edges. The color isn't as important, but colorful is to me. Smiling
I love the boarder on Mastery

OK, so there's some yellow in all of these, so I maybe I do like the ones with some yellow. Whistling

'blink' (blue and/or pink with contrasting or not beards) But this year I did really enjoy the deep orange of Copatonic and the Red of Quapaw and...... so no telling what I will be enthralled by next spring.
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

Come to think of it, of all the pics I put on facebook, everyone wanted Coral Capers. She was the hit of the garden!

I didn't have one white bloom this year. Maybe I won't love white the best, but I think I will.

I love a white iris, Linnea. And they make all the other blooms look better too.
