INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1976 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A lovely, sprightly rosy silver-lavender that just bubbles with effervescence and life. It is fascinating to watch the tight lavender pink buds unfurl slowly into glistening silver-lavender cascading blooms. Each bloom seems to be aquiver due to the pleasing cadence of the lacing plus ruffles that embellish each petal. Each petal measures more than 3½ inches across a heavy, leather-like substance. An upright, vigorous and free flowering creation with dark leathery foliage.
