Bluebeard is probably my favorite SDB, but I really also like Teagan and the many deep rich purples: More Drama, Autumn Jester, Jewel Baby, Crystal Ship, etc.

Wait, what's wrong with purple? Hilarious!
That's my favorite color too and irises do it so well!
I know that I have too many purples but I keep buying them. Someday maybe I'll pair it down to about 50 favorite purples Rolling on the floor laughing
