From Schreiners Iris Lovers Catalog 1997:”Connoisseurs of fine iris recognize this delicately shaded apricot amoena as one of the best. Its near white standards are classically arched while its ruffled falls present a gentle blending of buff, apricot and peach. A prolific bloomer, Champagne Elegance produces 7-10 buds per stem and consistently reblooms in later summer.”
