I just added LANDGRAEFIN ELISABETH to the database over in the Irises Cubit and posted these pictures. I held off doing this because I was worried that it was not the right plant, but I have now become convinced that it is correct. I was expecting a pink iris and when it bloomed it was more purple toned -- really pretty, though! But I reread the description in the Superstition catalog and it describes the standards as light creamy wine and the falls as wine red with a creamy wine colored border. Plus I looked at the picture in the Iris WIKI and added mine, and they're all basically the same. It is from Europe, and it's very ruffled. Love it!

It still gets me that you Hybridizers are willing to tear a beautiful thing like that up. What willpower.
