isn't the database great?! there are several more iris in the db with this similar coloring. look under characteristics, then check the "white" and "lines and speckles" boxes.

Yes, the database is such a neat tool. I think I like EX's wide yellow ruffle out of the group best of all, but I would love to grow any of those Smiling

Daphne ~ Haha...I was going to mention Expose as well...but you got here first! (Thank you, Daphne!) It was quite small, but managed to put out a colorful bloom at the end of May.



Elegance in Blue didn't bloom last year, but the year before in late May. It was quite tall and elegant with substantial petals and sturdy stems.



I just loved to see Embers in Time bloom in mid-May then late May.

I have Elf Esteem, but it hasn't bloomed yet (only 1st year). I think it will be one of my top favorites. Smiling


Another one I think I will like a lot that hasn't bloomed is Easy as Pie:


My favorite "E" that has bloomed is Exposed Lady:

It's been mentioned in this thread earlier, but is definitely one of my top "E" irises.
