Full Description

TB 34″ M

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1973: “Predominantly milk-blue or off-white color. Sea Venture will fascinate you with the beautiful swirling effect and its unusual patterned inlay of color. Standards are pale blue with a dramatic intensification of deeper ink blue at their base and alongside the mid-rib done in an unexpected and extraordinary manner. The standards are ruffled and swirling together at the top. The flaring pleasantly undulating falls are a uniform pale blue. Well branched stems opening three flowers at a time.”
