TB 36″ EM

From Melrose Gardens catalog for 1986: “The exciting color is coral-pink with a vibrancy of tone that can’t be missed. Wide, fluted and laced petals form superlative flowers that are produced by exceptionally vigorous, fast increasing plants which usually make three to five stems per rhizome for unrivaled floriferousness. The unparalleled popularity of this iris and its long list of awards has now culminated in the greatest of these, the Dykes Medal ’85.”
