From Schreiner’s catalog, 1969: LIME FIZZ (Schreiner 1969) E. 35" $25.00. We can scarcely praise this sparkling lime to pure yellow iris too much. You will love its starlit, ice green color, and the bloom so entrancingly ruffled. The needle point flowers have the utmost in airy lilt ... they literally dance. LIME FIZZ has that freshness of color that is so soul satisfying. Our illustration on page 4 only begins to give you an idea of what a splendid creation it is. We wish we could show it to each of you as it blooms. How the ruflles, lace and flounces would enthrall you! Outstanding for color, style and stem. Sdlg. #V825-B. HC'68.
LIME FIZZ opens many very lacy flowers at once, and a clump is a sight to behold. Occasionally individual flowers will have short standards, but over all quality offsets this. Colorwise it is a deep yellow with a very slight green influence. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 10.]
