  • The exotic coloration of this iris shows what the parent 'Romantic Evening' can produce.
You name a characteristic of a good iris, and this iris has it.

The only drawback is that it usually blooms before show time or AIS Conventions and has not been seen by enough judges. It did win an H.M. and still has eligibility for an A.M.

Rio de Janerio has a fascination for many and I wanted rio in the name. I remembered the first pairing of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire in 'Flying Down to Rio.' I think this is one of the first irises with four words in the name.

This is the favorite of my own introductions. -- WalterMoores - 09 Jan 2010
