It looks pretty tall, and the two I'm familiar with (BRILLIANCE and FIERY FIGURE) are shorter TB's. Sorry that I can't help, but it's soooo pretty! Love the oranges!

Yes, indeed, it is tall and I just love it. I had to stake it up so it would stay beautiful.
Thank you for looking.
I also have a lighter orange.

Do they bloom at the same time? They would look so lovely together.

I was never into orange, but now I am ordering some for the fall to match some poppies I am getting.

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

So, now we know. Japanese iris will overwinter and bloom in Georgia in a bog. Good job on my test, Charleen.

It is still blooming and I still love it whatever it is.
Thank you all for the names. I found a tag in one clump of iris that is Firebreather?????
