From AIS Bulletin #309 April 1998 Introducing VIOLET SHIMMER TB, 34", M. An iris star can shimmer in your garden with this introduction. Reminiscent of the all-over plicata pattern of the classic Blue Shimmer, this lighter version of Purple Pepper with modern ruffled form will steal your heart as it did for the judges who awarded it an Exhibition Certificate in 1997. Best described as a near fancy blue/violet on white plicata with show stalks and nine buds. Husky plants with purple based foliage, VIOLET SHIMMER is poised for a stellar stage or garden appearance. Sterling Prince X Purple Pepper. $30. Walter Moores.

  • A little darker than pictured, 'Violet Shimmer' made me think of the historic 'Blue Shimmer' when I named it.
Not just another violet and white plicata, this is a show stopper. It has won 'Queen' in three shows. I have seen it open six blooms at once with plenty of back-up buds. It won an H.M. but should have gone farther up the awards ladder. -- WalterMoores - 08 Jan 2010
