| Awaiting original catalog description
| Sometimes an iris is a surprise when it blooms. BUFFY was such an iris. Its description does nothing to prepare you for its pastel beauty. Lacy, buff-pink flowers of heavy substance are displayed on tall, well-branched stalks. During the 1970 bloom season this one stayed beautiful through some of our worst weather. It was probably the most photographed iris in my garden. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 10.]
