Leslie,
I'm on the fence about this Ghio Iris and wanted to get someone's first hand experience about how they felt about this cultivar. I've seen a couple of pictures on the Google search that were a little less flattering, and then there are some that make this a 'must have' hybrid. If you wouldn't mind sharing, how would you rate this hybrid? Thanks.

I think it is an absolutely beautiful bloom. It is such a standout in the garden. This was my first year with it blooming and I was very pleased at how long the blooms lasted, even during what was a very wet spring for my area. I love red iris and the color on this one is wonderful.

Thanks. The Mrs. loves red Irises too. Time to get out my Ghio catalog and put the order through!
