From Intro Catalog Schreiners Iris Lovers 1975 : BOLD HOUR (Schreiner 1975) ML 38// $20.00 The vivid rose-red plum colored falls with its glossy enamel sheen coupled with the contrasting pure white standards, rare in such color combinations, yields an effective color spot. In our garden picture, such a contrast in color and interesting pattern variations adds the spice and ginger to an ordinary setting. Bold Hour is a vigorous, consistent grower, excellently spaced branching with a full compliment of 7 to 9 buds. The rich colored, pert flaring falls and pure white standards beckon one from a block away. Photo on front cover.
