Full Description

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1966: “From Eleanor’s Pride x Salem – two supremely beautiful light blues – comes this fair charmer with lilting ruffling and the serene purity of a cerulean summer sky. I hasten to explain that it is bluer than the engravers proof and is also normally more heavily ruffled. Nothing more beautiful was ever seen in the blues. A perfect self except for the blue-white beard. Its rippling cadence of form brought a host of admirers toward it in the garden who exclaimed over the grace, the ruffling, and the purity of the sky blue color. Blue Chiffon will bring a frosty sparkle into your garden.”
