Dusky Challenger question
I divided a very overcrowded iris bed a couple of years ago, it had stopped blooming completely. I gave away tons of iris, kept a lot & replanted. They have slowly started blooming. This one bloomed today, looks like my Dusky Challenger, but the bloom is HUGE. DC isn't that big anywhere else. Maybe I got something else, for the longest time I kept a list of names everything I have every bought, but started tossing when I decided they were completely lost. I've had Before the Storm & Hello Darkness, are the flowers of either of these larger than Dusky Challenger? It may be hard to tell, but my hands are stretched out, & I got big hands :) Other DC are maybe 4" top to bottom.
Last year I got only heirloom yellows & peach iris blooming, this year I have some more interesting ones that I had given up for lost. A couple I don't remember ever having :) One turned up that I've had probably 10 years, Peach Jam, never bloomed, & I had given it up for dead.
Any thoughts on this one?
