Full Description

SDB 14″ M

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1981: “This bouncy, well groomed flower has both beauty and stamina. Our picture shows the attractiveness, personality and character of this amazing dwarf variety. The two-toned fuchsia garnet color with a heavy plush button-like finish in the center of the falls is topped by a blue beard. Looks spic and span!”

HM 1983.
