Full Description

TB 28″ M

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1988: “From California comes this scarce and much sought after deep garnet red self. Excellent heavy ruffling assures this maroon-ruby gem of its high repute within its color class. You simply will not see more ruffling in such a shade of red. Three branches, 11 buds, some triple socketed. Line breeding at its best!”
