Full Description

From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1974:”A luscious, appealing blend of delicate russet tan to liquescent honey peach. Unexcelled in form with just a little wriggle of a ruffle to its well spaced blooms. The plant is vigorous, producing rigid, nicely branched stems of exhibition quality.
