INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1928 Carl Salbach Iris Catalog: Its brilliant golden beard gives to its center the glow which is its chief claim to distinction. The tall standards of palest lavender and the flaring falls flushed rosy lavender are of the finest finish and style. 42 in stems, large flowers and rampart growth.
