INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1980 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: As if the heavens have touched the earth...this sparkler maintains an enviable position...the bluest Iris of allóbar none. Many a garden visitor has singled it out asking, "What's that blue iris?" A derivative of Babbling Brook its paramount claim to attention is its intrinsic blueness. Touch of Sky is not a large Iris but has a well proportioned stem. A true color jewel...roses are red and Iris is blue. Sure to be relished by the color enthusiast.
