INTERESTING INFO: From the 1982 Schreinerís Iris Lovers Catalog: Cosmic Dance is an Iris with several amazing aberrations from common color patterns. Instantly apparent are the pleasantly undulating ruffles so rare in the darker Iris. In color this self is a rich deep blue with shades of intense indigo. Not only does this unusual creation capture that elusive ruffling but it also displays a charming lighter blue edging pattern more evident n the bottom third of the falls. Good-sized flowers, stem has 2 branches with spur, 7 buds. Truly a universe in itself.
