From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2010: PASSIONATE EMBRACE (Black ‘10) (small flowered) TB Midseason-Late 34” (86cm). Passionate Embrace is an exceptionally nice small flowered Tall Bearded Iris. Bundle Of Love was my favorite parent until I saw Passionate Embrace seedlings bloom. It was love at first sight. The diversity of color and pattern and overall quality were more than I could have hoped for. Most were exquisitely proportioned BBs and small flowered TBs. Diamond dusted mauvish pink standards are brushed greenish tan along top edges. Lovely peach styles transition to metallic buff cream falls that blend slightly darker to rosy tan bands and hafts. Fully saturated coral beards add a little heat to Passionate Embrace. Vigorous growth forms tight clumps filled with show stalks having 3 branches plus spur and 8-9 buds. Small flowers with a dynamite impact. A MUST HAVE. Sdlg. N234AA: ((Goldkist x Taunt) x Fogbound) X Dolce. $50.00.
