Iris x warlsind
Often listed as the hybrid I. warleyensis x aucheri (syn. sindjarensis),
other experts say the cross is actually between warleyensis x bucharica.

 Growing 10" tall (25 cm) in flower, this beautiful hybrid shows a close
resemblance to it's parent Iris warleyensis. Notice how the falls are
strongly recurved, and a striking gold and brownish-purple color. The 
standards seem to be a paler smoky blue compared to it's parent.
The flowers are sweetly scented, similar to warleyensis.

In the photo below, snapped a few days earlier, we see the
entire plant with flower buds in the corn-leaf axils. The white-
flowered iris on the left is I. willmottiana alba.
