INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2012 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: If Fiddlin' Around won't spur you to get out into your garden, nothing will. This stylish neglecta offers perfectly arched violet blue standards. Splendid Tyrian purple falls deftly contrast with a white dusting around the yellow beard. The white is repeated on the inner sides of each petal, adding an extra dimension for the spectator. Lofty 40"ť stalks easily give 3 branches with 7-9 buds.
