Awaiting original catalog description
%What color is this lovely ruffled Siberian iris? Is it yellow with a lavender wash or a lavender ameona with a yellow band and yellow highlighted styles? However we describe it, this is a lovely ruffled unique creation. The flowers are large, 5 inches in diameter, held on stalks with one or two branches. The standards are pure white and the exceptionally wide style arms have the midrib and tips tinted yellow. The ruffled buds are lovely even before they open. --Carol Warner
