TB 34″ M

From Iris Test Gardens 1960: “Black purple self, including beard. The wide hafts are without veining and are ruffled, giving the flower great personality and charm. A really fine advance in the dark class.”

(Black Forest X Muhelstein sdlg. 47-33: (Storm King x Sable)), HM 1955, AM 1957.

From Cooley’s Iris Catalog 1962 “Glistening blackish purple standards and broad velvety black falls, slightly ruffled, combine to give us one of the very best of these rich and sultry beauties. The beard is tipped bronze.
