Hi Marilyn,

I'm wondering how certain you are regarding the ID of this iris? I can't find any other pictures of Urban Riot online to compare it with, but the registry describes it as being apricot with a brown wash on the falls, which doesn't seem to match your picture.

Normally, I wouldn't even guess at the ID, but could this possibly be Joe Ghio's 'Double Platinum'?



Thank you,

Kent

Hi Kent, sorry, I just saw this. I am at work right now, so I will look into it tomorrow. I got this iris from Rockytop. It was supposed to be Jeanne Clay Plank, but when it bloomed I saw that it was not. I sent Phil an email and asked him to ID it. He said "it looks like Urban Riot," which he sells. Well, it sure does look like Double Platinum. Tomorrow I will get in touch with him again and see if he was growing Double Platinum in 2014, when I purchased it, and I will get back to you. So sorry if the ID is wrong, but when I get an answer from Phil I will change it, and also change the picture that I posted on Iris Lovers on Facebook. Thank you for letting me know. *Blush*

This is the picture of Urban Riot on the Rockytop web site. It does look like my picture matches Double Platinum, but will let you know. Thanks.
