These are some of my odder looking Iris. Coffee Song is new last year and although I don't know what ciolor to call it, I think it's very pretty. The others are all from Zebra Gardens. The one I like best of those is QUAIL ALE.

RE: Friday Oddball Iris

I like Coffee Song. I have one that was sent to me as Coffee Royale. I've been told it isn't, & it does look like a bit newer iris & a bit different color. It has this same base color. I sure wouldn't drink coffee that looked like this, but it is really pretty in an iris. I love Tanzanian Tangerine. I like the Kasperek iris, they are just fun. Quail Ale is neat too, is that purple in it?

RE: Kasperek iris

My first year in iris I bought iris from Schreiners and Zebra Gardens. Well, I think I bought 10, maybe 12 Kasperek iris and he sent me much more than my original order in bonus iris. Some of them were tiny and didn't bloom last year but are or are going too this year. I was careful in choosing what I was sure I would like but then I got all the lots of extras. I don't care for the dotted ones like Tanzanian Tangerine, don't know what that dotted type is called in iris.

Quale Ale does have the small steaks of purple. I remember last year it was darker than it is this year. But a cold spring this year, a hot one last year.

They sure do come in some wild colors. I got a wild one by mistake- supposed to be violet. It's lavendar and brown.

Many of them are just not for me. Too odd looking and not very pretty.

I was looking at the wrong picture, I thought I was looking at Orangutan Orange :) I was wondering when you were talking about dotted & realized my mistake. I like the broken colors, not sure about Tanzanian Tangerine.
