TBE 36″

From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1997:
“This early bloomer dares to be different. Its bright tangerine beards accentuate the snappy contrast between the columbine blue plicata stitching and the clean white petals. These red orange beards easily distinguish it as unique among blue plicatas. Graceful ruffling provides a gentle cadence.”
