An experienced gardener of 'Tall Bearded Iris' in Oklahoma, Ann, traded this as 1 of 6 varieties she sent for my new Iris bed 7-19-17. I love the name & orange is a stand out color in any bed. It had to get settled in so made no flowers in 2018 but has multiplied to several fans so I'm expecting blooms this Spring. I can hardly wait!
