From AIS Bulletin #264 January 1987 Introducing BIONIC COMET-Sdlg. A-A 84-3. AB (1/2). 24". M. S. antique gold with matching styles. F. antique gold with large reddish brown blush, prodUcing an antique band effect. Red-maroon signals and beards. A real eye catcher in the garden and should win its share of blue ribbons in the arilbred class. I feel it is one of the best arilbreds that I have introduced in this class. It is a vigorous grower with strong stalks and up to 3 blooms. Bionic Burst X Check Me Out. $25.00. Pleasure Iris Gardens.
