Full Description

TB 35″ ML

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1981: ” ‘Here comes the bride’… with her new wedding dress. Our bride is richly embellished with florets of clear sparkling white. In addition she is gloriously crowned with a heavy gold wash on her standards and intense golden-yellow markings at the hafts. Starch-like substance and purity of coloring mark this gem for top star billing. A notable advance in the gold and cream-white group of varieties. Effectively, a gold crown reverse bicolor. Branched with 5 to 6 buds. Turn to our front cover and see this absorbing novelty.”

From Keith Keppel’s Irises catalog for 1982: “Ruffled white with a gold wash in standards and heavy golden haft overlay. Lightly laced.”
