INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2009 Nola's Iris Gardens Online Shop: This is a true gem indeed! Not only does it have 14 buds per stalk, but it has spots!! Note the unusual light pewter-blue standards with contrasting mustard gold style arms. Falls are white, but the best part are the light pewter-blue spots that become heavier towards the near solid light pewter-blue edges. Even the beards are pewter-blue too tipped mustard gold, bringing it all together.
