INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1987 Schreinerís Iris Lover's Catalog: A brand new color pattern, a milestone in Iris achievement, Lullaby of Spring offers a sweet consonance in subtle pastel tones; pure lemon yellow standards with soft warm lavender falls. The large elegantly rounded blossoms, endowed with a wax-like finish, have good weather resistant substance. Picture perfect well branched 9 budded stems present their dulcet melodies early in the blooms season.
