INTERSTING INFO: From the 1955 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Colorful as a Tunisian bazaar displaying raiment of striking hues is this glorified version of Raspberry Ribbon ennobled by the broad falls and leathery substance of rain-resistant Harlequin. What a color gem! Even persons hitherto cool to plicatas will warm to this one. Its fresh wine tone is so vibrant, its white blaze so clean cut, its broadly rounded form so satisfying! The giant blooms come with a prodigious generosity, creating a veritable fountain of color in the garden. An "oh" and "ah" Iris if ever there was one!
