Spiced Peaches remains one of my favorite Iris IB's. Each year when it blooms I appreciate it more. Nice straight stems, good bud count. nice ruffled form and substance, and the blooms last. Best of all is the rich peach color, which carries across the garden. I'll be moving some starts to another location this year. Great for the show bench if you catch it on the right day.....
