As you said, irisrover, this was by no means a surprise. Nevertheless, it still makes me happy. I'm a Keith Keppel fan in general, but this is one I grow quite successfully, and it's always beautiful. Do you know anything about the Wister Medal or the other winners?

Boy that bunch are a lot of rude stuck up people!
I posted a pic for help in IDing a Iris that I got in a trade. OMG they cut me to shreds. I felt so bad I have never gone bad to that page. Uppity bunch and rude to boot. IMHO!

Meanies! I've had a few say some things to me that would curl your toes. That's why I like Gardenweb.

Florintine Silk is so beautiful it nearly makes me cry when I see it. And I'm not emo, ya know, ha ha. But gads I love pastel iris and this one is la creme de la creme of pastels.

I love it when it is faded as well--it's got a whole 'nother "antoque" sort of look when faded.
