From Tempo Two catalog, 1989: PAGAN DANCE (Blyth 89) E-M·L Rebloomer in Autumn. Sdlg S146-A. Difficult toconvey how this Iris looks when flowering. It's lovely. Standards are violet; falls are velvety black-violet with a 3/8" edge of the standard colour. It has a sort of irridescent electricity about it and everyone loves it. Branching is a bit variable like its parent, but it makes a tremendous show and is a very reliable rebloomer for us. Good grower. (Cameo Wine X In Smoke). $25.00.
