INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2005 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: The brassy apricot-yellow color of the standards and ½" band on the falls eccentrically blends to cream, lavender and even violet in the centers of the falls. Note also how the tawny bronze shoulder marks accent this visual treat. Though late, the bloom habit is fantastic since each four-branched stem average 9 to 11 ruffled blossoms. Our hybrid concoction is strictly for those who like the inimatable.
