From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing QUIRK. 19". EML. Standards are bright yellow; flaring rounded falls are pale yellow, near white, overlaid with wine-red veining ending in a solid spot of wine-red at the tip of the falls. Well branched and many buds. Unusual and different, excellent for arrangements. M 1076-1. (Dainty Dancer x Desert Quail). $5.00. Brown's Iris Garden.
Everybody loves QUIRK ('71), a jaunty little variegata with delicately drawn veining and a tiny triangular dab of red at the tip of each fall there's nothing else quite like it.
