INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1973 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Iris come and go, but we predict this uniform "clean as a whistle" solid medium blue iris will go on delighting iris fanciers year after year. It has everythingóa perfection of beauty with a lilt and character and that enchanting fluting plus a liberal degree of ruffling, good form and haft pattern. The fluting and ruffling increases as the flower expands. Exquisitely formed and delicately finished clear blue self. Sturdy, well-branched stems; three branches plus a terminal with 7 to 8 buds. Highly Commended AIS '72.
