INTERSTING INFO: From the 1947 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A lovely harmony of color and style. This rich mid-blue arising from the cross of Anitra and Narain combines the splendid breeding of these two distinct families of blues most effectively. We enjoy a number of good blue iris but relatively few distinct new shades have been added in this class in several years. Danube Wave is very much a self, a rich shade of marine blue, remarkably blue. Its outstanding quality is its depth of coloring. Very thrify with exceptionally well substanced and poised bloom. It is an iris the fancier seeking a 'color note' will prize. Tall stems, well branched.
