From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1971 “A stately, rich, two toned development. Decorous, sculptured blooms are arrestingly contrasting, with luxurious falls of plush violet and standards of sultry blue. Even the beard, a somber brownish blue, complements the color ensemble. A flawless flower carried with easy grace on a fine spaced, branched stem.”
Early midseason bloom. Standards light to medium blue; falls rich, deep, velvety blackish violet; beard dusky orange to smoky shades. ‘Marvalon‘ X ‘Black Swan’. Schreiner 1970.
Honorable Mention 1972.
