Full Description

TB 37″ M

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1981: “Here is an extremely handsome bicolor – rich orchid-pink standards and regally precise rose falls. Lightly laced, broad and full in all parts this large seven inch flower has a tangerine red beard. A truly gorgeous color combination! Regretfully it produces only two to three branches, double socketed having 5 buds.”

Parentage unknown, HM 1982.

Provenance: Image2 from garden of L Munro, Newfoundland NJ, circa 2001, iris from Suttons, circa 2000.
