INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1970 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Like the early rising golden orb, this brilliant, tantalizing blend of shades of sunrise orange, dawn pink and apricot is resplendent in its beauty. The coloring is scintillating in brilliance and purity. The good sized flower is borne on branched stems and the stunning tangerine red beard is sheer exuberance. An added enchantement is the suggestion of a chartreuse blaze in the falls.
