I have an iris that doesn't live up to its name.

Chorus of Colors
Thumb of 2019-05-15/evelyninthegarden/c8effb Thumb of 2019-05-15/evelyninthegarden/dc1f0f

This must be a very soft chorus.

Do you have any irises that do not live up to their names?

Thankyou for the acorn Casey Green Grin!
My birthday is in December when my irises have finished blooming.

I just noticed this one in another thread.

Maybe it does live up to its name and nobody's survived to tell us about it Shrug!

One could say the same about about the TB TRIFFID. Hilarious! Mine hasn't bloomed yet - maybe a good thing!

I love this iris. I keep looking for it when I order, but have not found it ... at least not from a vendor with whom I want to deal.
