From the 2012 Bay View Gardens Catalog: One of the first irises we grew was Lothario. This reminds us of a modern version of that velvety beauty. The ruffly standards are blue white. The beautifully held falls are blue purple with a velvety black overcast. A wite ruffled blue white band and bright tangerine beards, serrated edges and scalloped ruffles complete this striking delight. Tall with perfect show branching.
