INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1974 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: We picture this spritely red dwarf iris. It is a distinct improvement in the red dwarf classóbrighter red, in better proportion to the dwarf plant and extra floriferous. Produces 3 or more buds per stem! A refinement in this popular color class with a bright orange beard to liven an already snappy colorógay.
