From the 1961 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: How few the flowers the confer the gift of blueness on one's garden! Only Iris and Delphiniums do it in a really big way, and only Iris come back generously year after year with effortless abandon. Sylvan Stream, which combines the beauty of Pierre Menard, Blue Rhythm, Chivalry and Harbor Blue, brings the tranquillity of still waters into your garden. Utmost clarity of color combined with a smooth enamelled power. In respect, also, it size, substance, unexcelled branching and high bud count it is a garden Iris to satisfy the most exacting. A touch of ruffling enhances its broad petals and classic form. Note the serene haft. What could give you more joy through the years than a clump of exquisitely beautiful Sylvan Stream?
