From Keith Keppel Iris catalog, 2017: OCEAN LINER EM 34” (Ghost Writer X Haunted Heart) #08-72E. As would be expected from the cross, another of the “lined” persuasion, this time done in blue. The lavender blue standards deepen toward the center and carry faint darker texture veining. The lavender blue falls have an overall patterning of deeper veining/lining, heaviest across the haft, which shows a slight white ground. Lavender blue beard hairs are tipped shrimp. Rapid increase means lots of stalks with 6-10 buds, resulting in heavy bloom. $50.00.
