Sherry, this is Plicutie's second year in my garden and it is a really enthusiastic historic. I will probably need to thin it this June. Whistling

This is a little guy that has been around for a bit. It grows well and has a lot going on.

SDB Being Busy, Ben Hager, 1993


This little guy reminds me a bit of the TB Mastery. Perhaps its the yellow standards and wide rim on the falls.

IB Allah, Mrs.M Doriot, 1957.



The iris powers that be decided several years ago that this iris should be classified as a Standard Dwarf and then did nothing to change its class. Oh, well. It fits with the little guys but will be listed as an IB until, or if ever, it is officially changed.

This little guy is really a beauty. SDB Ballistic, Paul Black, 2002




The tops of the standards are so dark and velvety that if they were black you could not see them. It is a little guy with wide standards and falls. It has a little more yellow where my photos show all white.

Are SDBs all really that short? It seems weird having a bloom practically on the ground. They are all gorgeous though.

Liz, MDB's are under 8 inches tall, SDB's are between 8 and 16 inches tall. Over 16 inches are the IB's. Most years, for the bearded irises, the shortest bloom first followed by the next highest and finishing with the TB's. This year they are a little out of order.

I grow these two close together. Both are yellow with blue beards but one is pale and the other bright. The contrast emphasizes the difference.
