From AIS Bulletin #293 April 1994 Introducing JUST BECAUSE-SIBERIAN. Schafer/Sacks (Seedling No. S86-27-2), 30", M. Just another blue-violet. We couldn't think of any good reason to introduce this iris except that it is so beautiful-Because, Just Because. A smooth blue-violet self with outstanding form-the falls are full, round, and ruffled and arch gracefully without being recurved. The standards are harmonious in color, shape, and ruffling. The signal is white, neat, and tiny. And the styles which are exquisitely simple have a bluer midrib, turquoise sideribs, and darker edges. It is vigorous and long blooming with one branch and four buds. Purple Prose X Springs Brook. $30.00. Joe Pye Weed's Garden.
