Awaiting original catalog description.
36", Early-Midseason, SA. This turkey ain't real modern--no ruffles but boy is it LACED! Unusual characteristic for SA irises! Kinda "red" too! Good bloomer and good grower which cannot be attributed to all novelty irises, especially laced ones. Look at pic. $55.00
