INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2010 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This prizewinner is a descendant of Above the Clouds X Can't Touch This. Its humongous 4¼" x 6½" flowers are copiously ruffled. Note the fascinating melding of azure blue and ivory white in the center of each fall, a distinctive mottled coloration reminiscent of Iris ensata. Standards are a spic 'n' span white and have extra-thick substance.
