Color Class--Amoenas


Simply defined an amoena is a flower with white standards and colored falls. It takes its name from Iris amoena which was at first believed to be a species but later was thought to be an ancient cross involving Iris pallida and possibly Iris variegata. Because it was one of the first larger bearded irises to have this color combination it provided the name for this color class.

The original amoenas had pure white standards and the above examples were chosen based on that criteria. Others come close with White standards with tinted midribs or bases, but the selections above were pure white.
