Hybridizer's Comment: This is typical of the quality iris that comes from 'Louisa's Song'. Standards are rich violet. Falls are deeper plush violet with 3/8" edge of the standard colour. Beards are white tipped yellow and slightly rmuted. It makes a great statement in the garden. Some show stems and very handsome purple based foliage. A standout.
