INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1930 Robert Wayman Iris Catalog: Every one who sees this Iris in my garden is fascinated with it. It is hard to imagine how anything could be more lovely. The color is a soft mauve and a bed of it is a solid mass of flowers on tall erect stalks. It has proven quite rugged and hardy here.
