From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2012: HANDMADE (Black ‘12) TB Midseason-Late 35” (89cm.) Putting blue beards on yellow TB irises has been just as elusive or maybe more so than putting them on pinks. Handmade is a small move forward in that quest. While it isn't what I was looking for, it has enough character and appeal to introduce. Strong, clean growth produces stalks with 3 branches plus spur and 7-8 buds. Sdlg. Q23C: (Peacetime x Ride the Tiger) X (Crash Course sib x (Cameo Appearance sib x (Lotus Land x Intimidator))). $50.00.
