Full Description

TB 36″ M

From Syllmar Gardens catalog for 1960: “Jaunty and saucy as a majorette strutting down the street, this vividly colored iris draws all eyes to it in admiration. The deep maroon falls are accentuated by a pure white beard and epaulet-like white plicata markings at haft. The standards just touch at the tips, the falls are flaring, and both are gracefully ruffled. 36″ tall, and every inch a leader.”

(Golden Gleam x Wayfarer), HM 1957.
