Full Description

TB 36″ E

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s Catalog for 1951: “This is a novelty Iris of an unusual fuchsia hue. The falls have a sheen of metallic rose enhanced by a blue blaze in the center, reminding one of the luster of a shining Christmas tree ornament. Everyone may not like this Iris, but those who respond to its bizarre coloring will like it a great deal.”

(Red Amber X Lothario).
