Full Description

TB 40″ EM

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1973: “If you like ruffles, frills, fringes, and lace in an iris you will revel in this unusual novelty plicata. The standards are a glowing blend of apricot and gold; the falls are maroon red stippled on old gold, folded and pleated. Highly individual.”

(1-2 PLD X Golden Filigree), HM 1971, AM 1973, Dykes Medal 1976.
