Purples and reds, rich and lovely. The color on Blackalicious is so yummy, I love it. Purple Serenade is a stunner also.

Palace Symphoney is a beauty, but then they all are! A feast for the eyes.

Thank you all for looking. We had had rain all day. I cannot believe the bloom has lasted so long. They were still very pretty today, and I have at least one that has never bloomed before, and I saw bloom spikes on it today. This is the best iris year I have ever had.

Purple Serenade is just gorgeous. Those reds and purples look great together.

Glad to hear you are having a great iris year. We're all enjoying it, that's for sure!

Sunkist is a bicolor not a self; that looks like Breakers or Yaquina Blue.
