INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1969 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: We can scarcely praise this sparkling lime to pure yellow iris too much. You will love its starlit, ice green color, and the bloom so entrancingly ruffled. The needle point flowers have the utmost in airy lilt...they literally dance. LIME FIZZ has that freshness of color that is so soul satisfying. Our illustration only begins to give you an idea of what a splendid creation it is. We wish we could show it to each of you as it blooms. How the ruffles, lace and flounces would entrall you! Outstanding for color, style and stem.
