iris reticulata 'Purple gem'?


iris reticulata 'Purple gem'? (Iris reticulata 'Purple Gem')

I bought some on Saturday and the gc said they were George. When my brother and I went back yesterday they were labeled up as Purple Gem. What do you reckon?

They have been planted today around the beech tree. along with a few other plants that have been sitting around in pots all winter. Hopefully they will be in flower soon.
