Full Description

TB 36″ E

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1963: “The blond beauty on our front cover, Pompano Peach, has a peachy apricot color and a luscious, luminescent quality that attracted garden visitors like a magnet. Our transparency of Pompano Peach reveals an intensity of frilling which greatly enhances its opulent beauty of form. Its sheen is so pronounced it appears positively lacquered. An iris of exceptional finish that seems to us the best in its color class, it is a striking effective garden iris that promises to have a great future. You’ll regret if you pass up this beauty.”

From Fleur de Lis Iris Catalog 1965 “EM 36″ A large peachy apricot with a luscious luminescent quality that is most effective in the garden. Nice form and finish. 10.00.”
