Green and Gifted for Illinois Dog Lover

Here is Green and Gifted. It's an odd color- it opens with lavendar falls here and fades within a day. The branching leaves something to be desired, but I like the funky color.

Another shot. It looks good when it's backlit.

Thank you, It is just beautiful. Love the brown and lavender-purple in it. I particulary love many of the iris most say are rather "ugly". Do you grow and have pictures of Green Eyed Sheba and Green Meadows?I keep searching for ones with green with brown. Hard to find truely green iris. There are a few more but I forgot their names, will have to look them up. Thank you again for posting.

Did you see the post on green irises on the AIS Blog? Here's a link- there were two of them.
I don't have pics of the other two.
I love the greenish ones too.

Here is a link that might be useful: Green Irises How green is my iris
