I am really enjoying the ruffled irises. There are some really nice ones out there. One of my favorites is Born This Way, It's such an amazing iris. There are many more so I'm really looking forward to seeing lots of pictures of ruffles here. Smiling

There are not too many little guys that have ruffles and those that do are not overly endowed. However there are a few that have a bit of ruffling and they are trying to hybridize for more. The name of this one is SDB All Ruffled Up.

One of the first iris's I ordered a few years back "In Love Again". Looking at the info in the database... it is an excellent parent as well.

I think of Ghio too when I hear ruffles.

And Blyth's have plenty of ruffles:

Brad's pic is much better than mine. Loved this one in bloom.

Not super ruffled but nice

And Keppel's Montmartre was my first really ruffly one.

Ruffles are great - but sometimes they're so over the top that the form is obscured.
This Blyth bloom in my garden made me chuckle.
