This is the first year bloom for 'Mezza Cartuccia' in my garden and when it bloomed, I was convinced that it was 'Mariposa Wizard'. So much so that I contacted Augusto Bianco. He confirmed that these are in fact, two very similar iris but he said that 'Mariposa Wizard' is slightly darker and slightly bluer. Below, two comparison photos which I took.
