Some of my favorite irises are those with blended colors. Show us your favorite color blended irises. I define color blends as those who have 2 or more colors together on the falls or standards, not just a bi-color, or bi-tone. You can show ones you have, or ones on your wish list. Smiling
Carnival Capers is one that I really enjoy.

I have many new blended iris (mostly Burseens) that will bloom, hopefully, for the first time in the spring. This thread made me realize how few I had before this year.

My favorite blend is Inner Space:

My close second is Zlatovlaska (and as Mary Ann said - bonus points for being a SA!):

And love the blend on what Bruce Filardi sent me as So Unusual, though I think it may be the parent American Maid instead:

Touch of Mahogany was a lovely bunch. Think it bloomed itself out though. Sad

And I agree on Trillion! Thumb of 2016-12-11/Lestv/b992d3
Praetorian Guard in the background is a bit of a blend too I realize.

All nice ones, and there's that Pop Idol again that I love, but it refuses to grow here.

I really like the historics. One day I'll collect more as some are just as good as newer ones. Most flat and not as tight, but classy and very elegant.
Gimme it and I'll grow it!

I like Burnt Toffee. I've never seen that one before. Thumbs up

The only blends I have are Honey Dripper and Electric Candy.


On my want list is All About Me, which I would describe as a blend with lines and speckles. Splurge is similar.

...and of course I must mention this one, which also has the added benefit of being a SA:


I got just got this one and I'm afraid it has had a bit of a rough time and will not bloom this spring, but it's definitely one I am looking forward to:
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice!

I never have thought of Thornbird as a blend. Hmmm.

Burseen blends I have that have not bloomed yet include:











Sort of a blended broken color



Goodness, and that is barely into my list. Guess you will all be seeing a lot of blended iris pics in the spring!
