From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2006: BLUEBEARD'S GHOST - SDB, 14.5" (37 cm), Midseason-Late. For me, Bluebeards's Ghost represents one of the finest introductions I've put on the market. There has never been a time that it didn't please me. The description is simple but the impact is huge. Pristine white flowers have just enough ruffling to be elegant and not plain. Fine, greenish veins trace up midribs and out over standards. Greenish texture veins fan out over falls. What about the blue beards? They are completely saturated indigo blue; enough so that it slightly tints the falls surrounding them. Bluebeard's Ghost will appear again & again with ever more pleasing clumps. Sdlg. L340A: Island Sun sib X Experiment. $18.00

  • This is real knockout of an iris. Its blooms ride over the foliage forming an ideal carpet effect. Highly vigorous, a stunner and all time great. -- WikiGuest - 03 May 2020
