Awaiting original catalog description
Awards: HC 2002 (WA Regional Trial Garden), HM 2003 (WA Regional Trial Garden), AM 2005 (WA Regional Trial Garden). Inaugural winner of the John Betts Medal, issued by the West Australian Region of the ISA. (Iris Society of Australia)
Hybridizer's Comment: This cultivar was the first re-blooming Louisiana iris bred in Australia. It was first noticed to re-bloom on 15 May 1992 by Heather's father, as it was growing at his home. Sadly he died that very night. The cultivar continued to re-bloom in May 1993, 1994 and 1995, so it was named for him.
