From AIS Bulletin #285 April 1992 Introducing APRICOT FROSTY (Niswonger '92) Sdlg. BB 30-89: Beachgirl X Champagne Elegance. Border Bearded, 23", M. This luscious apricot amoena is about as smooth as any iris I've seen. This "smoothness" seems to be a trait passed on by Champagne Elegance to its children. There is a nice contrast between the snow white stds.and the deep apricot falls. It also has an apricot beard. I believe that this will be a stand out in the Border Bearded class. It sets seeds easily and the pollen is fertile, but I haven't bloomed any from it yet. I think this will make an outstanding show in your garden. $25.00. Cape Iris.
