I bought a tall bearded iris called Queen's Wish several years ago. We had problems with gophers so the plant had to be moved from its original location. The tag eventually was lost among some weeds and now there are several irises that have been moved around so many times that they are getting mixed up. The iris that I think is Queen's Wish is now blooming! To be sure that I am correct, I went on line to find a picture of it. I was unable to find one. Is there anyone who can post a picture of Queen's Wish for me. I would really appreciate it! Thank you! I live in northern California and at this time many of our irises are starting to bloom so we are replacing name tags for the irises that lost theirs!

We don't have any photos of that one in the database but there is a description listed: Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Queen's Wish')

Not very likely you'll find any images as the hybridizer introed it 10 years ago and only has 4 intros.

Thank you so much for the answers about my finding a photo of the iris "Queen's Wish". I was wondering why it was so difficult to find a photo of this beautiful iris. Calif_Sue, do you happen to know the names of the other irises this hybridizer introduced? It would be interesting to see if there are any photos available of her other introductions.

Thanks again for helping me with this matter! Thank You! Thank You! Smiling
