INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1994 Schreiner's Iris Lovers Catalog: Bright tangerine red beards add causal elegance to these suave well-formed flowers. Our photo accurately illustrates the precise " band of yellow-apricot which outlines the ruffled creamy white falls. This same soft ocher-apricot color is evenly applied to the arched standards. Champagne Waltz offers good growth, with strong stalks bearing 9 buds, many triple socketed.
