From the 1960 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: From a trio of blues (Harbor Blue, Helen McGregor and Cahokia) comes this richly-endowed new blue with copious form, lavish ruffling, classic grace, and sparkling, frosty sheen. Beat it for beauty if you can! Sparkling Waters is a ravishingly beautiful, soul-satisfying, inspirational new blue. Enjoy classic beauty such as this in your garden and you will understand at once why iris stand supreme as a landscape flower.
