Good to know about the pbf. The older ones need such a help with ID.

The issue is that at certain times during the year, the PBF can be very hard to see and at other times is very obvious (this is with Wabash). This may be true of other plants; but I am only making this comment towards Wabash!

Exactly right, Greg. So you can be sure that you have one in the springtime -- and then change your mind in the fall. Shrug!

Well, mine has PBF on the lower part of the leaves. I have always thought it was Wabash and when I find out I could possible have something else I always think.... not again.

There are several other irises with this same color pattern....from the same time frame, ....and with the same 'parentage', so, THAT can muddy up the water a little more! Especially since the have / have not PBF issue isn't known on a few of them. That said, Wabash, and Bright Hour are the two most common, with Amigo being a close third.
