INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1998 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Like the dominating winter fog that sweeps our Oregon coastal shores, this reverse blue amoena literally overwhelms you. Its stems stand a lofty 40 inches tall and easily support 8-11 of the large 6 inch flowers. See how the icy blue standards nicely complement the cloudy white of the falls. Such a pleasant combination makes this child of Honky Tonk Blues a breath of fresh air late in teh bloom season.
