INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2012 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog What better Iris than Color Strokes to embody the blazing glory of sunrise? Carmine red plicata markings overly the white sunburst, fashioning a stunning contrast with the flame-red outer falls. The zestful orange-gold beard both enriches the radiant falls and complements the pristine white standards. Color Strokes' eye-catching color is a wonderful way to welcome the day. Its impressive stem dependably produces three branches and 6-7 buds.
