INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2001 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Let the pale lavender standards and the light phlox purple falls of this pastel masterpiece paint your garden like an evening sunset. See how the sulphur yellow of the beards is repeated in botht he midribs and stylearms. Tall ramrod-stiff 42" stems reach for the heavens and easily hold up to wind, rain and inclement weather. Truly a magnum opus of floral beauty.
