36″ Late midseason bloom. Color Class PR4VB. Standards pink flushed with blue-violet; falls blue-violet; beard tangerine-red. 

From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1971 “Touche, indeed! strikes a successful new combination of colors. A bicolor giving the impression of pink and blue. Standards are a light rosy red tone, falls blended violet with a burnt orange beard which adds depth. What in interesting progenitor of things to come!”
