Iris sibirica 'Roaring Jelly'

12th June 2019

A fabulous cultivar - I bought it just for the name and unfortunately I'm not sure this is the real thing.
Raised by Marty Schafer and Jan Sacks, registered in 1992. The American Iris Society encyclopedia says;

"This jelly is definitely raspberry. The falls are thoroughly covered in bright raspberry-maroon dappling. The standards and styles are very light lavender with gently diffusing raspberry veining. The small white signal is surrounded by a navy blue flush. The plant is vigorous and the flowers are full, round and slightly recurved with good substance.
