I remember seeing this Iris in the data base and I thought it was beautiful then and this is a lovely picture of it. Can you refresh my memory with the name? Thanks! Sue

It's an unregistered seedling of Keith Keppel's. The closest introduced iris I can think of is probably Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Daughter of Stars'). Oddly, I never really cared for Daughter of Stars, but absolutely loved this seedling.

Thanks Kent. It is beautiful! I think maybe I was thinking of Secret Recipe which I came across when I got further on in the Iris photos.
