Full Description

TB 38″ LM-VL

From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog for 1968: “A fascinating new iris of amoena pattern, this has broad, well-domed standards of pure white with a touch of glittery gilt at their base under nearly horizontal falls of pure white upon which vivid blue violet veins radiate outward from around the near white beard in a ray-like pattern accented by a touch of gilt at the edges of the haft.”

(Pretender X Fabulous Kate), HM 1964.
