INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1972 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: With its cadenced rhythmic motion this charming red plicata offers you a real surprise. Its animated crimson markings on a gay yellow ground mark it as the reddest plicata of any iris that we catalog. It is a must for those that delight in the unusual and surprising in color. Early blooming, good stem, well-branched and 5 to 8 buds.
