INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1989 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: An ebullient color pattern! The falls' deep rose-violet tones lighten at their edges creating a delicate rose rim. See the complimentary white center medial stripe. The pinkish tan standards are classically arched and ruffled. In addition, this bitone has outstanding growth and stem qualities. Stout flowers possess excellent form and are presented on superbly branched stems bearing 9-11 buds.
