Hi everyone. Haven't been on here in a little while. I've been doing a lot of work with the Greater St Louis Iris Society, and it's show season! But it's also bloom season, and boy do I have blooms! I'm just thrilled.

I know what most of my irises are. But occasionally I'll have one pop up that I'm not sure about. So maybe you can help me?

This is definitely a TB. That's pretty much all I know.

Any ideas? Thanks!!

Standards are a really clear buff peach color. Falls are kind of a wine/magenta color, plicata pattern, with a center line. Beards are orange. Nothing special about the plant itself, but it has great candelabra branching, had four buds per stalk. Definitely a TB, but not at the top end of the height spectrum. It's a good 10 inches shorter than 'Jurassic Park' next to it.
