As a comment about Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Holy Night'), TBGDN wrote:

The tall bearded iris Holy Night originated from the hybridizer, K. Mohr (Mohr Gardens) and was registered in 1983. Its color is described as a deep violet purple with a deep purple beard. No picture I have ever taken can show or do justice to its true velvety beauty. It stands out in the garden as if made from an expensive velvet fabric; and its color is enhanced by full sunlight as well as shade. What is most important is the hardiness and reliability of its growth and bloom habits.

Hi Larry,
It is not noticeably fragrant beyond what is 'normal' for most hybrid irises. All have a slight, soft fragrance, but the most fragrant ones are (in my opinion) some of the older ones known as 'species' irises. These shown here are examples of what I mean. Both have a 'grape Kool-aid' fragrance which is very noticeable.
BTW Welcome!
