INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2013 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Seemingly lit from within, a gradual warm glow energizes the center of Care to Dance. Its pristine white upper standards and wide raspberry falls extend an invitation. See in our photo how Care to Dance’s swirling petticoats, with their lavender border and warm center blaze, pull you in. Perfect form, big flowers on 35” stems, say “Come on!”
