I really like Black Magic Woman and Blueberry Bliss, too. They both have performed well for me.

Some of my favorites starting with "B" are:

Berserk

Boundless - This subtly colored beauty blooms early and then reblooms.

I really like BERSERK'S bright orange beard. I am drawn to those for some reason.

Nice ones Tom. This thread may be dangerous to my pocket book. Rolling my eyes.

This is one that I added last year from Iris City Gardens. I love the pictures on here. I hope it does well.

1. Butterfly Affair

2. Blues Clues


Ahh Hah. I think I see a pattern above!

Edited to add two more I thought of:
3. Beauty Within

4. Bahama Blues
I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!

Wow, BLACK SUITED sure does look totally black. Most of my dark ones have a purple undertint. Sighing!

Born This Way is really more peachy than this photo shows and more violet than purple. I haven't gotten a good photo of it recently.

Hi, Jane Welcome! That is a nice group, my favorite I think is BORN THIS WAY.

Looking thru my Bs, I had forgotten BRILLIANT IDEA. I just love the bright beard on it!

Better than Butter was outstanding in its first year bloom. Thank you Andrea!

I didn't mention that B is also for "broken", which I find fascinating as each bloom is different from the previous bloom.

I'm really glad it did well for you, Evelyn. I was going to list it among my favorite "B" irises and forgot.
