Another light blue iris, ho hum, right? NOT! This iris is HUGE, and it is really the blue of a slightly hazy sky. It has grown like gangbusters for me too. Did I say it was also deliciously ruffly, with great substance? When it bloomed this year for the first time, it literally made me gasp when I walked out in the garden in the morning.

Despite this iris' name, and its written description, it is incredibly elegant rather than garish. I highly recommend it!

Talking about Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Good Looking'), LynNY wrote:

This is an iris that is so much nicer than the photos tend to show. What makes it a standout is the color, a smoky, misty medium purple that looks like something you'd choose for a velvet gown. It is a 1990's vintage so it lacks the intense ruffling (that I adore) of the newer iris, but the flowers are huge and once established it is a vigorous grower here for me in the northeast. Because of the color, it goes in any cut flower arrangement --- it was great as the "feature" with County Cork and Crimson Lights, but it could also be the background for a wilder selection, whether warm or cool colors. Gotta say, I love it!

When I saw the pictures of this iris, I knew I had to have it despite my general lack of success in keeping Joe Ghio's gorgeous irises alive in my rainy climate. This year, it bloomed. It is every bit as amazing as the picture --- no ---- more amazing. The flower is huge. It glows. It is worth every struggle to grow. If I were the person giving out the Wister Medal --- this would be a winner. Try it! It will leave you breathless.
