NOTE 1: "Purple" is not used as a color because some people use it to refer to BV and others use it to mean RV NOTE 2: The color category for each iris has been determined by what Dr. Finney's eye sees, This is not always what the registration description says. NOTE 3: Every effort has been made to provide Specimen pictures that accurately represent the color of the iris. When an iris fades badly, sometimes there is more than one picture.
