INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2014 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: his offspring of Blueberry Parfait will draw more than normal raves in the coming years. Hereís a blue amoena of stunning chromatic contrast. The standards are pristine white in their entirety, providing a contrast with the inky blue violet falls. However, the beguiling white underlies the dark tone of the falls as well, evidenced by the white flash around the yellow beard, and the fine outline around the petalís rim. Three branched stems yield at least 7 buds per stalk on this early blooming showstopper.
