I've read about fairly significant differences in color saturation in Sibs depending on climate or location. This is darker than the photos at Joe Pye Weed. Are you sure of the ID Carl?

I know that the clump that the photo was taken from was labeled Silver Girl. But mistakes have been made.
In fact another beardless iris I took a picture of at Schreiners was definitely wrong.
Lets say it's not. Though, with all the cloudy weather the color saturation on this trip was amazing. But not that amazing.
I thought I had checked them all.

Sorry for the delay Carl. I've moved the image to the Iris parent entry if that's OK.

Well, I was going through my photos from Aitken's Salmon Creek Garden and found this photo.

Apparently, Silver Girl fades a LOT. My original photo is probably correct. The flower was fresh and the weather was overcast.

I've moved the photo back to Siberian Iris (Iris 'Silver Girl') Carl. She's probably getting Dizzy!

Coincidentally the article I read, either by Marty Schafer or Jan Sacks I'll have to look it up, featured some images of their sibs grown at Aitken's. I hope you add the clump shot to the database.

When I post my pictures of Aitken's I'll add the clump shot to the data base.

When I went to Schreiner's a few years back, it was cool and overcast. The iris colors were intense!
