From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2011: Living Your Dream (Black ‘11) TB Midseason-Very Late 36” (91cm). The dream is creating an iris with blue standards, pink falls and blue beards. Obviously it isn't there yet. 'New Face' has far better color but lacks the blue beards. Living Your Dream pulls together two different approaches to try to unite it all in one package. Standards blend from medium red purple outward to chalky lilac diffuse bands. Falls are light chalky blue lilac blending darker beneath beards that are tangerine white in throat ending in lilac blue. Narrow lilac rims encircle standards, falls and style crests. Sturdy show stalks have 3 branches and 7-9 buds. Proving to be a very productive parent. Sdlg. P54D: Magical Moment X Crash Course. $50.00.
