INTERSTING INFO: From the 1959 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This dusty lavender-rose is one of those silvery iridescent Iris so subtle in their coloring that they are difficult to describe. Alpenrose will be an ornament in your garden because of the tranquil poise of its carriage on tall, extra well-branched stems, and because of the sofe undulation of its ruffling which gives it a very interesting silhouette. A pleasant Iris that will endear itself to the fancier.
