TB 34″ L

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1973: “This is the blackest iris we have seen. It is so black, without a hint of purple or maroon, and so reminiscent of the color and high polish of a patent leather finish that it is unbelievable. We wish there were a few more buds produced per stem, but the flowers are large and for color alone it is a standout.”

(Prince Indigo X Nightside), HM 1972.
