From AIS Bulletin #220 January 1976 Introducing TWICE BRIGHT (1976). TB, M, 45", #107-0A. $25.00. A ruffled, fluted and laced iris. It is a blend whose 6"x7" blooms are beautifully formed. Uniform blend of pink, flesh and lilac. The outstanding beard is tangerine on the back 3/4ths. The front l/4 is purple-violet, thus TWICE BRIGHT. I'm sure you will also like the unusual bloom stalk, which has a fan-like shape. I have counted as many as 22 buds. The blooms are equally distributed over the fan, no crowding. It has attracted much attention and admiration. Gibson's Iris Garden.
