From the 1975 Schreinerís Iris Loverís Catalog: The vivid rose-plum colored falls with its glossy enamel sheen coupled with the contrasting pure white standards, rare in such color combination, yields an effective color spot. In our garden picture, such a contrast in color and interesting pattern variations adds the spice and ginger to an ordinary setting. Bold Hour is a vigorous, consistent grower, excellently spaced branching with a full compliment of 7 to 9 buds. The rich colored, pert flaring falls and pure white standards beckon one from a block away.
