Many blues are serene and calm, but this flower displays a hint of frivolity. It has fluted domed standards and broad heavily ruffled horizontal falls. The florets are airly poised on heavy stalks. It is a splendid increaser and has good strong foliage. A lilting iris with flair and personality. Late midseason. 35 inches. $25.00. Echo Hill Garden.
