Full Description

TB M S9M

From the Cayeux-LeClerc En Cie catalog for 1931: “Well branched strong firm stems over 3 feet tall. The flowers are of a fine fla(t)tened shape, expending in profusion at the same time. S. light violet with a greyish-slaty reflect. F. at right angles to the standards, gracefully frilled, purple-red on the center, shading lighter at the edges: large white throat reticulated violet. An iris of exceptional vigor recommendable specially for the profuse way it flower(s) late in the season.”

From Linwood Iris¬† Gardens 1936 “A subtle rich red purple of unusual beauty. Having a distinctive creamy white throat and creamy veining giving it a distinctive charm found in no other iris. The broad beautiful falls are frilled and flaring. Large.¬† LATE. 36”. Hardy and fine. .65″
