Monico Iris?

aunt_lou(Z5 OH)September 10, 2009

Is there an iris name of Monico? At our county fair the local garden club ladies always bring quite a few rhizomes and other plants to sell to make money for their clubs and this year I purchased a rhizome marked Monico. The tag also said that it was lavender. The only thing that comes up in my searches online is Monaco ---as in Princess Caroline of Monaco. I sure hope that it turns out to be that one but if anyone here has ever heard of an iris named simply Monico please let me know. Would appreciate any info on it as well. Thanks! :)

There's a Monaco that was introduced in 1976 by B. Brown.

Don't know if you'll be able to see this link without being a member:

Here is a link that might be useful: Monaco

Thank you, Thurston. I was able to use your link and think it may very well be that Monaco since the label did indicate that it was lavender. I guess Princess Caroline of Monaco is a very lite blue. Thanks again! :)
