From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2007: STROKE OF BRILLIANCE - SDB, 14" (36 cm), Early-Midseason. STROKE OF BRILLIANCE is right at the top of the list of five star irises. What an amazingly bright clump it makes. Standards are orange juice orange and styles slightly darker orange. Falls are tan with very wide amber-gold plicata bands that become almost solid over the hafts leaving a very small patch of tan ground color that is speckled taupe. The real STROKE OF BRILLIANCE is the fully saturated, big, thick, chenille beards that are screaming red-orange. For those breeding space agers, there are ridges at the ends of the beards. Here's another SDB you won't confuse with any other. It is an awesome parent giving a wide range of colors and patterns. Sdlg. L350A: Pookie X Pussycat Pink sib. Photo page 88. $18.00.
