INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1977 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: "New color breaks" come and go few equal this beauty. The unusually deep rose-raspberry of this finely formed flower is enhanced on its falls which are slightly lighter towards the center. This color is further accentuated by its tangerine-red beard and well substanced, close addressed standards. It is hard to describe this pristine beauty, so we will rely on our front cover picture to portray and do justice to its illusive color. Tall with regal bearing, three branches plus an additional spur. 9 buds.
