Full Description

TB 38″ M-L

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1983: “Ruffled silvery light powder blue self; deep bluebird blue beard tipped silver.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1984: “A giant step forward in the evolution of a white iris with true blue beards. This siren’s song is a glacially cool white-blue self with deeply intense blue beards. Individual flowers flare and are precisely sculptured with fine heavy substance. The eight-budded stem is tall and well proportioned with three moderate branches and a spur. Opens three blooms at a time with ease… a show bench winner!”

(Nobleman X Blue Luster), HM 1981, AM 1983, Dykes Medal 1986.
