TB, 38″ (97 cm), Midseason to late bloom. White self, deep tangerine-red beard. Inspiration X (Schreiner sdlg. 32-46 x Cherry Flip). Schreiner 1954.
Honorable Mention 1956

From Schreiner’s 1958 Iris Lovers Catalog: “Nature likes to keep on jump ahead of us. Thus iris hybridizing has it surprises,of which this pure,glowing white out of two flamingo pinks is certainly one. The exuberantly rich tangerine red beard provides a note of sheer distinction as contrasty as curry powder or paprika on a bowl of fluffy snow white rice.
