Whats your Name??

I seem to have gardeners amnesia, as I cannot find the tag for this iris and I just have NO idea what it is.. Uhm I could swear it was pale pale pink though.

Your flower pictures are wonderful, sharp, clear, thanks for sharing them.

There's nature co-ordinating the beautiful colors together! Could this be a Bearded Hybrid...they get their name from the fuzzy "beard" at the base of their falls...according to my book on perennials.

Thank you indy, and naturegirl. I thought it was much more pale pink than it turned out to be, but we figure either a tag problem (apparently the same happened with my so-called sarah bernhardt peony) Either way I love them both!

Oh, tag problems! I get lots of those with daylilies.

Now I tend to read the words as well as look at the picture (although it doesn't always help). I also lift the tag all the way out of the container to make sure it hasn't faded. (I've bought a nice white flower before only to take it home and discover the unfaded part of the tag shows it as dark yellow.)

Live and learn.
