Jo Ann, I am not one for pinks much, but I really like both the Good to Go and the NOID pinks. And I LOVE Name Game and Samurai Warrior.
It’s okay to not know all the answers.

I agree about the pinks.I do have an over chosen series of darks.I am just drawn to those deep colors.

JoAnn -- your collection is wonderful. Wondering if the NOID pink could be Baboon Bottom? Looks like the photo shown on the threads here recently. Also -- is your picture of *Name Game* accurate, color-wise? If so -- that is a phenomenal Iris! I think it's a must-have.................... nodding

Tom -- would you be kind enough to put my name on one of those rhizomes of *Cat Call*? Lovey dubby Whistling

Name Game is really darker brown red.I have to experiment with daylight photos.I usually pix early morning when the sun is barely up.This made the camera add more light to the photos

to me, that's a lot of Brad Kasperek's appeal as a hybridizer...His variety names are amazingly descriptive ! Rita loves 'em!....Arlyn

Knowing the Kaspereks I would guess that Kathy is behind many of the names..........

Thanks for the comments. It's been a struggle, between all the rain and the unrelenting wind the blooms are hard to photograph. They sure get beat up fast, and aren't lasting long. I hope this wind ends soon.
