From AIS Bulletin #293 April 1994 Introducing BRINDLED BEAUTY - A beautiful variegated Iris with a good stalk and many buds. For many years we have been trying to break the genetic tie that has combined the variegated color pattern with poor branching and low bud count. Now we have BRINDLED BEAUTY with a well-branched stalk and a long bloom season. You'll like the contrasting colors that this unusual Iris brings to your garden. $35.00. Varigay Gardens.
