Full Description

TB 48″ M S6L

From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1948: “A mirage of magnificent grandeur is this replica of Arizona’s Mesa. The copper tan flower has a brownish suffusion at the haft, while a violet midrib trims the standards. The heavy golden beard is conspicuous above the patch of violet on the falls.”
