Lordy Be, don't get me started on Japanese irises! Mt. Pleasant's are gorgeous.
I loved the first - with Koto in the name. I have a good friend who plays that instrument.
Iris is the goddess of the rainbow.

Funny - I like Black Cherry Sorbet better. He used to carry Redrock Princess, which definitely looks like a parent of these two.

His JI's are always outstanding, but as I have sung his praises before, I just left it to others to discover. Go through his list of JI's and Laevigata to see all his creations. The two beardless I want most of his now are Dragon Tapestry, and Lakeside Ghost. Then all the others I don't have. Hilarious!

If I could grow it here, I definitely would. It is a striking plant.
