Full Description

TB 36″ ML

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1977: “The cool richness of this classically graceful and magnificently translucent citrine-creme self lends its charm and beauty to our Iris rainbow. It is a welcome addition! This handsome, fully rounded flower has a substance like glossy wax and yet is lightly ruffled. Each petal measures a full 4″ across. The blooms are borne with an air of quiet elegance on three well spaced branches plus terminal, 8 buds. We dedicate this Iris to Mrs. Boehm of the renowned Boehm China Works of England.”
