TB 36″ M-L

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1962: “The unexpected always adds piquancy to the garden picture and in the iris world the so-called “fancies” can be depended on to create surprise. This quixotic iris of starchiest flaring form is far more unique when viewed from above in the clump. A veritable pinwheel of cascading color, ruby-burgundy on cream, derived form Karachi X Gene Wild, it has a lot of visual “bounce.” The radial lines create a dynamic effect like the markings of a pansy or Japanese iris. Very crisp and pert.”

From Chet Tompkins Fleur de Lis Iris Catalog 1966 “A starchy, flaring flower in the “fancy”or washed plicata class. Stands are of rick burgundy and falls are white with a near solid overlay of Burgundy red through which white lines radiate from a small white area round the bronzy beard. Fascinating.”

(Karachi X Gene Wild), HM 1963.
