Full Description

From Marble Iris Gardens 1952:
L.36″ A very deep rich blue with a brown flush on the haft of the falls. This unusual iris has a near white beard giving the entire flower a beautiful sheen.
HM 1948.

From Cooley’s Iris Catalog 1952  “Very rich deep blue, the exceptionally wide falls having a lacquered appearance. Standards are a shade lighter than the falls,broad and full, crisp and brilliant. The haft is solid brown with a long white beard shading into orange within the flower. The very best iris of this color. Big, bold and 3 feet tall.”
