INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1989 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: As its name suggests, Premier Edition is a first calss winner in the blue amoena category. At 39" in height this gentle giant not only physically stands out in the garden, it emanates a refined grace and elegance as well. Billowing white standards and perfectly round medium blue-lavender falls create a globular type of flower form. Its stem habit is splendid, with 4-5 branches displaying 11-14 buds.
