From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2012: NAME GAME (Black ‘12) TB Midseason-Late 33” (84cm). Creation of a "red" iris moves forward at a snail's pace. Many hybridizers continue to tackle this seemingly unachievable goal, but with each successive generation it seems more and more a possibility. We tell ourselves, "just one more generation and we'll have it". Name Game is an easy grower, forming impressive clumps full of stalks. Backlit with sun it appears very red. Sdlg. O18XX: Cranberry Sauce X Drinks at Sunset. $50.00.
