INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1990 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Jazz Festival features a subtle synthesis of color and gently ruffled form. An imfusion of soft cerise warms the center of the flared rosy violet falls. Gracefully curved standards are tinctured in creamy buff shades. Our photo shows the soft buter tones of the style arms, hightlighted by rosy light purple stigmas. These jumbo 6 flowers are displayed on rigid four-branched stems with 8 buds each.
