Huntington library irises

I went for "Desert Days" last weekend and while wandering around found these blooming iris.
'Winter Queen'

'Frequent Flyer'


'White Lightning'

Got this plant from the arboretum. It has PBF (purple based foliage).

'Eternal Bliss'


An intermediate bearded iris from Sutton, 1999. It received both Honorable Mention and Award of Merit. Unusual, that blue is so electric! And I had never seen a iris with flounces before.  Love this one. Received as a bonus from Nola's Iris.
