From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1951: “An unusual coloring, buff-fawn with a brilliant tangerine beard. Pronounced flaring blooms carrying in the garden as shrimp to salmon-buff with prominent orange beard.”

Comment: “Such a soft and feminine flower with great tall stalks and loads of blooms. It increased like a weed!” – Mike, WA
