I LOVE this color combo Marilyn, my absolute favorite colors in the garden! I need to check if I have any iris with these color combos.

Saddly, this isn't Island Sunset though. Sad Could you have entered the wrong one? Or is it tagged wrong?

I got it from Schreiner's and this is from their website:

http://www.schreinersgardens.com/miva/merchant.mvc?Screen=PR...

This the desc. they have on their site:

"Island Gossip's apricot standards combine with its rosy burgundy falls and tangerine beards to provide an enchanting presence. Its large (4" x 6") ruffled flowers possess a tantalizingly sweet fragrance."

The pic they have match the desc. and mine looks like theirs.

The link you provided doesn't even match what Schreiners has either.

"1992, Schreiner

'Island Sunset' (Schreiner, R. 1992) Sdlg. W 735-A. TB, 36" (91 cm), M. S. apricot pink (RHS 26C); F. apricot yellow (23C); beards tangerine; ruffled. 'Erleen Richeson' X 'Olympic Challenge'. Schreiner 1992. HM 1994."

Sue,

The pic is the same as Barry Blyth's pic.

"Photo by Barry Blyth and used with permission."

The AHS got it wrong again.

Marilyn, you added all three photos to Island Sunset, not Island Gossip. Whistling

Hilarious! That's probably why I added them to the wrong one.

Thanks! Big Grin I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up
