From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2006: CROW'S FEET - BB, 27" (69 cm), Early-Midseason. While Crow's Feet on a person are to be avoided, they are what gives this iris its great distinction. Ruffled standards and styles are pristine white. White falls have just the slightest ruffling so as not to obscure the closely etched network of vibrant red-purple veins shot from beards to margins. Space between veins about half way down the fall is lightly sanded red-purple becoming darker at lower edge. Narrow orchid-white bands lay on edges of upper two-thirds of falls. Veins at hafts are brownish tan. Beards are white overlaid bright tangerine. Smaller flowers are held on proportionately smaller stalks having 3 branches and 9-10 buds. Crow's Feet creates a very colorful clump. Sdlg. K187A: (Color My World sib x Taunt) X Snowed In. $35.00.
