The information about this iris shows an introduction date of 2014, before a registration date of 2016. Is that correct? Can an iris be introduced to the public before it is registered?

I exhibited Sparkling Rose at our state Iris society a few years ago and won a first place blue ribbon over many modern hybrids. This is high praise for an iris registered nearly many decades ago. It is lovely.

Talking about Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Pinkity'), Polymerous wrote:

See this thread: The thread "For those of you who have 'Pinkity'" in Irises forum

The bottom line is that even though the AIS description and the hybridizer description do not mention PBF, per the hybridizer's daughter (Sheri Arevalo), 'Pinkity' "sure does have PBF". Per her father, the hybridizer, 'Pinkity' has a 1-1 1/4" "lavender" base (which he did not consider dark enough to be "purple").

I have submitted a plant detail edit to indicate that the plant has PBF, because it looks purple enough to me. (I have it planted next to 'Bloodline', which does not have PBF. 'Pinkity' clearly looks to have a purple base, in comparison.)

I have re-ordered 'Pinkity' (I originally bought it from the hybridizer's nursery, Blue J Iris) and will compare the basal foliage on the new rhizomes to those that I already have.

This surprised me this year with it's strong chocolate color and very definite chocolate fragrance! I thought it was one of the "chocolate" varieties I planted in the recent past, but I found the tag and confirmed the name here.
