INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2008 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Lily-white standards refreshingly complement the serene Mediterranean blue falls of this impeccably fresh amoena. Our picture shows this flawless balancing of complementary colors. Note how the vibrant ruffling of the wide 6¼" x 4¼" petals radiate a shimmering of luster. This vigorous child of Nehalem Bay has a hardy growth habit, flawless form and can admirably withstand stormy weather. Ramrod-stiff stalks consistently produce double sockets thereby yielding 6-8 buds per stem.
