Iris 'Blue Lustre'

Impossible to get the color correct for this one (it's deep in that category of purples, violets and cool blues that most cameras absolutely refuse to comprehend). It really is very blue (for what is, in reality, purple) -- a darker purple/blue than indicated in the photo, but the closest I've seen to a true darkish blue in an iris.

Wow! That's really beautiful!

How vivid! I must have it. The photo shows a lavender sheen to it, is it accurate? Blue highlited with lavender would be terrific! If not, it's still terrific.
