INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1987 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Aptly named, Fringe of Gold is a dramatic contrast of sparkling beauty. Deep rich gold tones radiate from the beard and hafts into a " rim around the edges of the falls, as if emblazoned on the creamy white petals. Upright standards are blessed with deep canary yellow coloration as well. Although not large, 5 to 6 copious blooms are presented on ideally branched stems.
