INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2013 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Note just how delicate coloration and exquisite form creat an irresistable airiness. The upright closed standards are done in an understated peach-pink. The creamy shadings of the ruffled and falring falls are edged with a picoteed rosy rim " wide. Add the bright tangerine beard and what an alluring color combination! Three branches with 7-8 buds per stem and often more than one stem per clump.
