Full Description

TB 37″ M

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1965: “Pale bluish-orchid, a shade difficult to describe but it certainly is not in any sense pink. The very bright tangerine beard, on a creamy ground, creates a dramatic and unusual effect. Big blossoms, flaring falls, with ripples, ruffles and frills.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1966: “Imagine a fluted, ruffled, and fluffy orchid blue iris with the center of the flower lighter colored and capped by a dart of flame red beard. Flowers are not large but for beauty of form, placement on stem and grace of flower this iris is a wonderful achievement. One of the finest new iris from this breeder.”
