From the 2013 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: We are proud to announce another step forward in bitone blue Iris breeding. Held with a stately flare, the wide ruffled falls boast a uniform deep hyacinth blue hue. Classically arched silver-blue standards add an impeccable finishing touch. This neglecta's stem habit offers double-socketed buds which yield 8-10 blooms per stalk.
