Whilst this cultivar appears near-black in photos, in person I find it to be a very dark purple and much nicer than the photos suggest.

Talking about Species Iris (Iris verna 'Brumback Blue'), AntMan01 wrote:

According to the introducer of this selection, Jan Sacks and Marty Schafer, they regard this cultivar as Iris verna var. smalliana, due to the wider leaves than the type species, and the shorter distance between offshoots. I have reconfirmed with Jan & Marty that they consider this Iris verna ssp. smalliana 'Brumback Blue', named for horticulturalist and former director of the New England Wildflower Society Bill Brumback. I recommend changing the record accordingly. Thank you.

Talking about Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Stairway to Heaven'), bron wrote:

Another one for the sub tropics!!! I am amazed as I only recently planted this out from a small pot where I had put it on receiving a small fan only 4 months ago. Not fully open yet but I accidentally broke the tall bloom spike while watering it in, so this is my FFE.

Talking about Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Tay Daum'), bron wrote:

Tay Daum has bloomed 4 months from when I bought a small fan from the hybridiser. I first put it in a 6"pot. Before I planted it out recently, it had a tall bloom spike which I cut and gave away. I am amazed it has done so well, and big blooms have continued for a month now. We had some cool nights but it only reached freezing for a few minutes on a couple of nights. Great having early bloomers in this sub tropical (YES!) climate.

It has a very slight, not great fragrance.

I just divided my clump of 'Ida Red'. The PBF is not at all strong, barely a hint way down at the base. This, in early September in northern CA (zone 9).
