Catching up again...
Here's a bi-color that does very well in my garden.
|'Art Form' (TB Ben Hager 1989)|
One I lost 2 years ago. Ginny Spoon was nice enough to send me another.
|'Blue Kentucky Girl' (TB Schreiber 2002)|
Ginny Spoon from Winterberry also helped me to fill in my Dykes collection with this historic iris.

In the Bestiary 2 gnu... I mean new cultivars bloomed from Brad Kasperek. 'Gnu' and 'King Tush' compliment each other nicely.

A relatively new Wister Medal winner just bloomed this season.
|'Kathy Chilton' (TB Frederick Kerr 2006)|
Wister Medal 2012
Another new bloom is Sutton's 'Lord Of Rings.' Shades of bronze with a a subtle darker bronze edge that widen from the hafts toward the end of the falls make it unusual.
|'Lord of Rings' (TB George Sutton 2003)|
Historic irises like Minnesota Skies remind us of the origins of modern hybrids.
|'Minnesota Skies' (TB Alice Foss for Victor Hartkopf 1957)|
Speaking of modern hybrids, 'Montmartre' has just about every feature of the newest hybrids. Over the top? Sure. I love it.
|'Montmartre' (TB Keith Keppel 2008)|
This border bearded is another white with purple plicata. It is distinguished by the vey narrow edge on the falls and lightly peppered as well.
|'Orinoco Flow' (BB C. Bartlett 1993)|
