INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2014 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Atop 46 inch stalks, and sporting wing-like flounces, Wings At Dawn is ready, if the wind picks up, to become airborne. Pale apricot standards, bristling with ripples, hold good form and substance. The falls are the real show. Besides the wild, uplifting flounces, a loud orange beard sits on the white ground. Brown lashes adorn the hafts, and as the edges of the petal are approached, a spreading purple wash encroaches, which is leavened by a soupcon of sienna. Reserve your flight today!
