INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1971 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A new dimension was added to the iris color patterns when I. pumila was crossed with the tall bearded iris. The resultant Lilliputs, as this class is popularly called, produced a new range of interesting spots and patterned falls, taking after the pumila ancestry. The next challenge was to move this spot up into the next larger flowered, and later flowering, intermediate iris…even harder to do. Solo, as well as Dinger, represents marked advance in this unique family. We illustrate Solo to show the pleasant yellow thumbprint pattern on cream.
