Full Description

TB 34″ E-EM

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1981: “Navajo Blanket’s upright conical florets are as remarkable as the boldly patterned contrasts of an Indian weaving. In each flower the rich claret purple falls nicely offset the near white faintly suffused wine standards. An early blooming, lightly ruffled jewel having two branches and a spur on nice rigid stems. There is no other two-toned variety quite like this unique study in contrasts!.”
