INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1964 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This is one of those curious color combinations which seem to defy the most artful engraver. Dancing Rill is a subtle blend of rose and sunburst gold with an overall sparkle of gold dust that adds a lot of life. It is far brighter and more beautiful than our picture suggests. Actually the coloring is quite unique. This is a good sized iris with a delightful ruffle and zestful flaring form. The gold dust sheen gives it a lot of "dance" like sunshine glinting on dancing water.
