INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1990 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This classically beautiful serene blue Iris has been overlooked. Most amazing are Grecian Skies' incomparable gigantic beacon brightred beards. The three branched stems are shown bench perfect, stiff, and display their colors with elan. See for yourself just how beautiful this ruffled marvel can be.
