TB, 32″ (81 cm), Midseason bloom. Color Class-V1D, Self, deep violet, near black. Sister of ‘Black Forest’ X Down East’. Schreiner 1953.

From Sheriners Iris Lovers Catalog 1955  “If I ma y say so, our seedling field has shown some rather remarkable advances in blacks. In the falls of Black Castle accurately depicted , e have really reached almost the limit of coloring. Black Castle is not quite as tall as Storm Warning but in its falls is even closer to jet. The orange beard is indescribaily rich. for a really deep organ tone in the symphony of Iris color try these new blacks. 10.00”
