Other: Something totally broke the stem off this Iris and I found the stem on the ground. I think while laying on the ground something chewed on it as you can see the bad spot on the falls. Then, although that was just the first bud to open, I left the bloom stem outside in a plastic coke bottle vase, and we got high winds and it blew it all over. So I probably won't be able to get a better photo until 2012. But from what I see, this is a very beautiful Iris with nice form.
