TB 39″ M
From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1974: “An iris that has so many meritorious features – tops in form, beauty, color, growing habits. One feels inadequate for the paeans of praise it deserves. Sumptuousness, luxuriousness, extremely rich, deep bishop’s purple beard and all! Poetic as a matins’ song. A wonderful stem with 7 to 9 buds, and a robust grower. Large blooms of classic form.”
