Iris identification please

taigen_gwJune 30, 2008

Hi I was visiting at someone's garden, I don't even know the people but their garden was just wonderful and so we stopped to ask for a look. They were very gracious and gave us a little tour. They have this wonderful iris that I took a photo of but she didn't know the name of it as it was someone elses cast off. I hope the picture shows the true colour as it is almost a "caramel" colouring to it, just a wonderful plant that I would like to try and find if I knew the name.

Anyway here is the photo...hope someone can identify it for me. Thanks

P.S. I will try posting this on a more open part of the forum also.

Looks a lot like 'Champagne Elegance' to me.

I agree. Looks a lot like the pictures of 'Champagne Elegance' at Dave's Gardens

well, not to complicate matters, but the only thing that didn't quite fit with 'CE' is the beard color seems more orange in your photo.

Could 'Magharee' be a possibility? (see it on Schreiner's website)

Thank you for the reply and the certainly does look like the same iris "Frontier Lady". I have posted this on other parts of the forum and some think it may also be a champagne elegance iris. There is actually a garden club meeting tonight and I printed off the photo and will take it along.
Thank you again for your help.
Have a great day.
