Raspberry Ice is one of my favorite Irises that I have planted in the last couple of years. I love Keith Keppel's intros, love plicatas, and love SDB's. This fits all the bills. Lovely flower, gorgeous color, great increase. The year after I planted it, there was enough increase to share. Worthy of its spot in a crowded garden.
