I would like to have an iris with a ruffled (not lacey) form similar to 'Stairway to Heaven', with rose pink standards and velvety deeper rose or magenta falls. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

This one comes to mind, I have it but it hasn't bloomed yet, so here's a pic from the data base.

If you like a more historic form, Camelot Rose might do.

It's a nice iris, and seems to be a good grower, wherever it is.
