Schreiner's, R&I 1959
Available - not endangered
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.”
