INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1970 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A stately, plushy, rich, two toned development. Decorous sculptured blooms are arrestingly contrasting with sonorous, luxurious falls of velvety deep violet and standards of sultry blue. Even the beard, a sombre brownish blue, compliments the color ensemble. The flower is without a vein or mar and the easy grace of the rigid, fine spaced, branched stem contributes to the topnotch ranking of this unusual amoena.
