INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1997 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: We selected this handsome neglecta as the best in its class. Though not tall, its clean cool shades of light blue and dark violet-black mark it as a sure winner. Growth vigor and bloom habit are also excellent. An extra-long branche ensures an average of 7-10 buds and a full two weeks of open flowers per stalk. Note how the bright yellow beards light up this outstanding Iris. It's the first to bloom and truly a paragon of beauty.
