| From Tempo Two catalog, 2014: ABSOLUTE CUTE (Blyth 2014 Aust) M 25 Border Bearded. The most delightful smaller Iris with standards of soft pink, deepening to lilac at the midribs. The falls are lavender pink with a rose pink overlay extending 2/3 of the way down the falls and a fine white line running down from the white, tipped tangerine beards. Flowers are wide, full and ruffled and neatly in proportion on show stems. A slow increaser, typical of many Border Bearded Iris. We love this. Fertility is difficult but will set seed.
