I'm looking to find a really nice raspberry-colored SELF iris. Any good suggestions? Thanks.


I've created a bed of self (solid) iris: "Dusky Challenger", "Rhinelander", and "Color Me Blue".

These colors look great together, and I'd like to add more to this range of the color spectrum.

I want to stay away from yellows, oranges, peachy pinks. Thanks again.

Reds are tricky in that one person's raspberry may be another person's fuchsia.

Lady Friend is a popular self on the raspberry side of red.

Gypsy Romance is more on the fuchsia side.

Rogue might be another one in that color range.

jmc, if you go to the database, click on Iris, then do a search for "raspberry" a list of iris with raspberry in the name will come up.

Sheer Ecstasy is a pretty one that blooms reliably and increases nicely.
