INTERSTING INFO:
From the 1988 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: One of the first tall bearded Iris to blossom, this floriferous bitone often produces two or three blooms per stem per plant. As an additional bonus, it tends to burst into bloom again in the fall. This child of Titan's Glory, pictured on page 2, combines the vigorous growth habits and flower size (6" x 6") of its parent with it own distinctive color pattern. Light wisteria blue standards sharply contrast the deep hyacinth blue falls. A striking color effect!
