From Schreiner’s catalog, 1964: ROYAL TAPESTRY (Schreiner 1964) M. 37". Here is a lavishly beautiful reel iris of immense size and superb habit-an iris as rich as any royal tapestry from Flanders. We know of nothing to equal it in its color class. Happily our engraving does it justice. Here is a new king for your iris garden. Royal Tapestry is tall and regal with excellent branching, just now being achieved in the reels. If you want a very imposing, illustrious-looking iris, something that bespeaks quality through and through, get ROYAL TAPESTRY! An iris that connoisseurs can be proud to own. Here is the culmination of a long line of various numbered seedlings bred in the hopes of getting such a rich color. No. R 1053-4. $25.00.
