Tall bearded Iris "Peach Jam"

Tall bearded Iris "Peach Jam" (Iris germanica (Orris))

First time flowering for " Peach Jam", bought 2015 Gardens4you. Rather disappointed with the colour, it is supposed to have purple streaks to the petals, but also every flower can have different markings, will see if there are the purple streaks on the next flowers. And it is its first year!

Probably correct. Not such a vibrant colour pink as Twice Thrilling, but it is a good shaped flower with crinkly edges to the standards, and it grew well. If the next flowers are better I will re photograph.

Four flowers have opened on this one now all without purple markings, one more to go. Will have to see next year.

The streaking is caused by an unstable gene, it is thought.
