INTERSTING INFO: From the 1952 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: There are countless plicata marked with blue and scores etched cinnamon and tan, but, strangely, very few that have a completely solid deep yellow background throughout the entire flower. In Frolic we find the unusual combination of deft brown strippling on a solid gold ground, reminding one of cypripedium pubescens, the yellow ladyslipper, or certail tropical orchids. Indeed, Frolic is most exotic and orchid-like. A fine novelty for the advanced Iris enthusiast.
