Full Description

38″ E-Mid.

From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1987: “Few blends equal this lusty rich copper brown self for its robust vigor and large flowers. Its color is equally remarkable – a shiny copper blossom that has balls of an even deeper burnished brown tone. These tailored flowers are beautifully borne on spaced branches with 6 to 7 buds (three branches and a spur).
