My new favorite is 'Chocolate Ecstasy' (O.Schick 2001)

'Rustler' is a good one if you like rust colored.

The only true brown I have is "Huckleberry Fudge" and all the visitors to my garden just love it. The colors aren't just right in this picture - it is a true brown.

Browns are hard to find. I like Game Plan, Rustle of Spring, Rembrandt Magic, and Chocolate Chess. Golden Panther has brownish tones in my soil. A lady from about ten miles away in Delta soil brought GP to our show and it was really brown.

Thanks to everyone on their comments about Brown Iris. At one time I though Olympio was considered "Brown"
Where does one find a realiable commercial grower for Browns??

HappyTomato,

To my knowledge no ones specializes in one particular color of beardeds.

Many reliable growers carry some "brown" cultivars. There is a good sized list at the AIS site (link below).

Dave's Garden doesn't list sources for Chocolate Ecstacy but a gal in Canada has put up 2 good pics.

Thanks to all in reference to "Brown" Iris.

I used to grow this one, Ruffled Copper Sunset:

Also, Blyth's "Touch of Mahogany" was an outstanding grower here. It has a washed out look in the middle of the falls, though, so it might not have the color you crave.
