I can't seem to find Blueberry Swirl Iris (Schreiner 04) in the database. I was going to propose for it to be added but I can't seem to find the botanical name.
Can someone please add this for me?
Thank You!

Not sure what you mean by botanical name? Confused Do you mean Genus? Iris

All registered iris are in the database and I just checked all of Schreiner iris and they don't have one by that name. You must have gotten the wrong name?

Yes I meant Genus.
There is a public garden and they have an Iris named blueberry swirl schreiner 2004, I guess they have the name wrong... Confused

That beard is so distinctive, someone should be able to ID it for you. You can ask the folks, here, by putting it in a "Can you name this?" thread. Or send it to Schreiners and see if someone there recognizes it. Or, if you have a Facebook account, post it on one of the Iris Lovers or hybridizer pages and see if someone there can identify it. If you don't have a Facebook account and want to go that route, I can post it with your permission.

I just went through all of Schreiner's website, it was hard, but someone had to do it Hilarious! and I didn't find anything that looked like it. Odd too that no one has ever registered one with that name either.

I also went through the ATP database using the Hybridizer and year of introduction from 1999 to 2010--nothing. Checked the Iris twiki, too, for all with Blueberry or Swirl in the name. Again, nothing remotely close. The public garden seems to have it incorrect all the way around?

Could it be "Blueberry Ice?"

Nope.

I feel like I've seen it before, but can't find a match at the moment.

I felt the same way Kent, it looks so familiar.

woofie, the beard color is wrong and too much white in the standards.

I went on Schreiner's website too with no luck.
Thanks for trying!

Yes the public garden definitely has it wrong. The local Iris club runs the garden.
Sure you can put it on Facebook if you like.

After 48 likes, one share, and no comments, I took it down. For some reason, I keep thinking Paul might know what it is. Chances are it is just my brain misfiring, but won't hurt to ask. What do you think, Paul?

I took it down because, even though I posted it with your copyright, the 'share' started to make me nervous. Hilarious!

And it would have received a lot more likes--it is a good photograph!
