. Schreiner 1963. Honorable Mention 1965.
| From Schreiner's 1963 catalog: TYROLEAN BLUE (Schreiner 1963) ML 33". This vibrant deep blue iris shown on our front cover, is enhanced by rich brown epaulets on the hafts which create a very novel effect not found in any other blue iris. These wide hafts colored this interesting brown remind one for all the world of the attractive jackets worn in the Tyrol, which do combine effectively the colors blue and brown. This is a fine foreground iris with excellent stems and abundant bloom. Its heavy substance and intense color saturation make it very showy en masse. Parentage is Biscay Bay x King's Choice. R606-A. $20.00
