Full Description

TB 34″ M

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1988: “No Iris shows more verve than Queen In Calico. Form and color contribute equally here to create a unique and irresistible personality. Its ruffled and heavily laced petals are accented with a striking rosy violet striped plicata pattern. Tangerine beards as well! This combination of color, pattern and form really needs to be seen.”
