TB Iris Cross Current

This is from my Image taken May 17, 2017. It is of the TB iris Cross Current which grows beautifully here in Indiana. It is from one of the best in the Hybridizing efforts by Keith Keppel.

What is "TB"?

Would love to see a closeup of the bloom if possible. Smiling

Thanks everyone! I had almost forgotten this banner until this morning. It is from my "oldie" TB Keppel collection which grows beautifully here. This is the picture it came from, and a couple of other views. It was a little too sunny that day and I felt the picture color might be distorted. Last picture has too much sunlight.

Hi Cal- TB simply means tall bearded iris. Here are some close up pictures from years past. Thanks for your interest.

Hello Frank-
A banner is the photo strip across the top of the page above. It is submitted by NGA members, and one is selected daily. By the way I haven't seen you here before, so allow me to say Welcome. I hope you'll like it here, and I see you are up in Nova Scotia.
Again Welcome!

Thanks for the closeups Leon....beautiful.

Now, one last request, please.......zoom down into it, i.e. select the inside part using the original
(4k?) image (3rd one on the right), clip, and then re-size to 1000 pixels wide for a really spectacular view. Thumbs up

I'm always amazed at the details of a bloom when you go deep to see the cellular structure,
pistil, stamens, pollen, even little critters hiding there that are not otherwise noticed. Smiling
