A few years ago, this was sold to me as Red Zinger...I wonder what it is.

The only thing that I could find that is close is Tennison Ridge (your photo on the right)

Robin ~ Thank you. I forgot to mention they are a bit shorter that a TB. Otherwise their appearance is about the same.

Evelyn's iris appears to pre-date Tennison Ridge. You might look at Port Wine, Karachi, or another of multitude of white/wine plicatas introduced in the 50's, 60's, and 70's.
