References:

From Blue J Iris online catalog, 2017: LEROY'S SILVERBACK - Leonard & Kathryn Jedlicka, 2012, TB, 34”, M. This space-age chameleon can look very different at varying light levels. It has standards of light violet with a pinkish-purple infusion and frilled light violet lace on ruffled and fluted edges. Very flaring disk-like round falls are light violet-blue with a pearly white-lavender cast that catches the light amid heavily serrated violet-blue lace. Styles are lavender and bright yellow, and there are yellow stripes on the hafts. Beards are orange-yellow with consistent ½” fuzzy lavender horns that angle upwards. 6 buds are on so-so branching. We named LeRoy ’s Silverback in honor of LeRoy Meininger, the good friend who taught us to hybridize iris. (Formerly seedling Jeda 3-32C3) Capricious Candles X unknown.
