Tall Bearded Iris   Scintillated Disappointment (Iris germanica)

Tall Bearded Iris bought from a French Garden Centre as 'Scintilation' (white standards, orchid pink falls, orange beard) obviously not. That is 2 out of 4 not as quoted, the other 2 have not flowered this year. Two more disappointments next year? I have a clump like this, already.

This is the last of the clumps to start flowering.

No, we don't usually go to the area in France where the Garden Centre was situated. I have also resigned myself to the remaining 2 pots not being what they are supposed to be next year. Also I don't want to perpetuate a name that it is not.
