I think the picture and the Iris are both beautiful! I've gone back to look at it several times. Although I was planning on cutting back on my Iris, this one is really tempting!

Susie - you won't be disappointed in it if you decide to buy! It has really been a good iris for me and is just different enough from many other iris to really stand out in the garden. One of my favorites. And the shot really took itself - I think it is very true to the color you see in person. Smiling

Susie - the only place I know for sure that carries it is Schreiners.
