INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2007 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Regally tall, this richly colored bitone comes form the cross of our Merlot X Brazilian Holiday. Deep burgundy falls nicely complement the lighter ruby standards and harmonizing beards. Opulent flowers hold their lavish colors even during inclement weather. Each stem produces 10-14 buds, marking it one of the last Iris to bloom.
