INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2013 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Surprise—what a color combination! Secret Melody's arched standards are a pure smooth apricot color. Heavy raspberry rose pilcata markings emboss the light apricot falls. This streaky marbled application of rosy tones presents a fine color contrast. From the cross of Capricious x Queen in Calico. A hit parader with a rhythm all its own. Three branches with 6-7 buds.
