CLASS: Tall Bearded
BLOOM SEASON: Mid
DESCRIPTION: White ground plicata, petunia-violet markings.
PARENTAGE: Bright Contrast x Flying Saucer
From the 1960 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Here is a very much larger version of the long-popular Minnie Colquitt with a whiter ground color on the standards and a slightly rosier margining on both standards and falls. An iris of crsip, clean-cut form, huge size, and excellent habits. A really fine plicata.
Webmaster Note: The AIS Registry officially spells this cultivar as "KIMBERLY," however the Schreiner catalogs spells it as listed on the title of this page.
