TB 40″ ML
This iris breaks all records for size of bloom. Believe it or not, we measured four blooms of Giant Rose and each one measured between 11 and 11½ inches from top to bottom! Most giant iris lack character but not Giant Rose. It has rugged, inch-thick stems, superb candelabrum branching, excellent starchy substance, jaunty classic form, considerable ruffling and a sparkling sheen. An iris with a huge flower, beautiful color and fine form. Hard to beat! Patent pending.”
