| Hybridizer's Comment: A joy to grow; add show stems and a lovely parent and this man is a sure hit. Standards are pure white as well as the style arms being white with gold lacy crests. The falls are deep violet with a huge white starburst pattern radiating out more than hait way down the falls and spreading out nearly to the edge. The hafts go to violet brown and the beards are golden orange. Wide, flared and ruffled flowers with show stems and strong growth. Deep purple based foliage. We love it. Fertile and a good parent. Coming from two excellent Keppel Iris.
