Full Description

M 36″
From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1988:”This ruffled honey tan and lavender blend shimmers with an intriguing interplay of pastel tones/ The delightful rosy lavender falls are nicely edged with a 1/2 inch border of warm bufftan. The same honey coloring also blends from the petals underside and the flower’s interior.”
