Written 10 days ago, here is a post that got lost in the shuffle of Iris Show.
Here are some of the Tall Bearded Iris in bloom. Please stop by anytime to see them in person. The Camera does not capture it all.
The first three are from my "Bestiary" section. Sometimes called "zebras" these broken-pattern iris offer a quirky take on beauty. Brad Kasperek is the hybridizer who dominates this group. His creative, whimsical names reflect the amusing look of these iris.

|'Pythonz Parasol' TB (Kasperek, 2001)|
|'Gnu Blues' TB (Kasperek, 1993)|
Now to the more conventional!
|'Better Than Butter' TB (Black 2010)|
Clearly historic because of the tear-drop falls and smoothly edged standards, this is a resilient iris.
Can anyone name this for me?
