INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2014 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Cornbread n'Honey is another example of an Iris that needs a new category. Itís not quite a variegata, with much of the falls the same brassy yellow as the standards. Red and yellow, psychologists say, make us hungry. Itís not advisable to eat this entry because stock is scarce. However you will be galvanized by the electric coloring and the irrepressible ripples. Though shorter than other tall bearded Iris, this glowing delectable is a standout.
