INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2013 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Legerdemain is the perfect moniker for an Iris with two different colors on teh same stem. "Wait a minute. Is this a trick?" you'll ask. No, it's not. Initially it opens blue with the falls part coffee. Then it fades to tan amoena. Both versions ahve in common an electric red beard, with excellent form. Both are attractive.
