I'm leaning towards Concertina as it doesn't have the horns / flounces like Ropers Revenge. Your thoughts please.

On beard color alone, it would have to be Concertina. Shrug!

flower form and beard color discount "Concertina" in my opinion.

'Kid Power' looks like a better match.

I'm leaning towards Godsend...because of both form and color. Do you know how old the iris is?
