From Tempo Two catalog, 2015: CHAOS THEORY (Blyth 2015 Aust) M 34”. This is a real novelty for us: a flat Iris. So often flat Iris appear in the seedling rows and they are so unstable with form, reverting to a normal Tall Bearded. 'Total Chaos' is consistent, no standards, just 6 falls and 6 beards. Style arms are white and prominent, while the falls are mid violet with a large white area covering around 1/3 of the fall, spraying our like a starburst. The 3 top falls cover virtually all the lower 3 falls. Not a fast increaser. It set a pod last season. (S191-1: Royal Orders x (Q24-Y: (Keppel 99-43S: Gypsy Lord sib) x 96-50F Rio sib) X (Q24-A: (Keppel 99-43S: Gypsy Lord sib) x 96-50F Rio sib). Sdlg No.U198-1. $60.00.
