Hybridizer's Comment: A standout for us from its maiden bloom, mainly because of its form and super beards. Standards are beige champagne and the falls are the same, shot with lavender, just like shot silk. Beards are striking brown-bronze over tangerine. Everyone loves this unique iris. Good branching. Quite Fertile.
