This is a lovely pale iris that is growing somewhere in my iris bed! Does anyone else grow it, and have you noticed PBF on it?

No, I no longer have it. The drought, advancing age and other things have taken a toll on the numbers I grow. I don't recall whether it had PBF or not. Sorry.

Good luck. Holy Smoke is not an easy one to buy. Only at Bluebird Haven that I know of, and I believe they had lots of losses due to the 2015 rot issue. If you find it somewhere else please post that.
