I was being goofy when I named this Iris. Both this Iris and 'Billowy Violet,' which are sibs, clump up fast. Now that can be a good thing, or perhaps not. When an Iris increases *very* quickly, it can also cause small rhizomes with rhizomes upon rhizome and this can decrease flower production in certain Iris varieties; causing one to have to thin the clump for better bloom.

Because this Iris began its life like its sib (sib = Sibling), there is a possibility that it will perform well in poor dry conditions close to a tree line with only afternoon sun.

After seeing another posted photo of this Iris, I'm disappointed. I probably wouldn't purchase the Iris myself.
However, my recommendation is to grow this particular Iris in **low fertility dry soil** (like close to a tree line). That's where the seedling started, and that's where I think it will perform the best. Its maiden blooms look much better than later blooms after being moved. But it suffered in its first location for several years before I finally got it moved. It looks okay at the new lot, where soil is/was fresh and more fertile, but not as good as maiden blooms.

Very vigorous grower and reliable bloomer. Gorgeous color.

Three suppliers all gave Mme. Henri Cayeux instead of the correct one. Seems to be among the lost varieties.

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') on May 13, 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.
Talking about Intermediate Bearded Iris (Iris 'Spiced Peaches') on May 13, Paul2032 wrote:

Spiced Peaches remains one of my favorite Iris IB's. Each year when it blooms I appreciate it more. Nice straight stems, good bud count. nice ruffled form and substance, and the blooms last. Best of all is the rich peach color, which carries across the garden. I'll be moving some starts to another location this year. Great for the show bench if you catch it on the right day.....
