Schreiner's, R&I 1980
Available - not endangered
TB 40″ EM
From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1980: “The Iris has the fine touch of genius as in an ancient Rembrandt or Rubens. Superlative quality! The glory of rich Tyrian purple shows the majesty of its breeding. This ideally strong grower has handsome nicely ruffled seven inch flowers with just the right touch of delicate finesse. Taken altogether one experiences a feeling of both regal air and yet easy grace. The overall effect is a rich, but startlingly beautiful uplifting of spirit. Stems have three branches with 8 buds; 4 double sockets.”
