INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1994 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Here we have a pure light baby blue self with white beards and racy horizontally flaring falls. We crossed two of the best sapphire standard dwarfs: Jeremy Brian and Rain Dance to produce this wonder. Its ideally proportioned flowers measure a dainty 1½" x 2½". This prolific bloomer averages 4-8 stems per clump and is a vigorous grower.
