Species cross iris

Iris junonia X Iris aphylla 'Wine Red'
Only a few were big enough to bloom this year, but here's the lightest. There were several others with more gray-lilac blend and one tall, large-flowered one, but that one was a little floppy textured in the heat. It bloomed fine in cooler weather. Anyway, a fun cross to see some blooms from and could be more fun to work into some Tall Bearded lines.
