INTERSTING INFO: From the 1936 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: An unusual yellow blend. The color is mainly a clear warm yellow in the standards but the falls are overlaid an attractive fawn or taffy-gold. The combination is soft and pleasing. Capri is a Bruno derivative of superb form, with flaring falls of Frieda Mohr type, and the heaviest of substance. Flowers are large. We exhibited this as a seedling at the Minnesota Iris Show in 1935 where it won the blue ribbon in the seedling class and was also awarded the grandchampionship of the show. This variety is ideal for foreground planting, being moderately branched and about 30 inches tall.
