Full Description

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1960: “When you see this glistening, majestically carried beautifully branched light powder blue iris that has quality in every detail, you will want to enjoy it in your garden. This outstanding powder blue self, with its gracefully rising arched standards and stiffly flaring, weather resistant falls reminds one of a pretty girl in her dance formal – and as proud as can be, indeed!”

(Jane Phillips x Blue Rhythm), HM 1956, AM 1958, Dykes Medal 1961.
