INTERSTING INFO: From the 1982 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This vigoursly rich yellow self glows with an effervescence all its own. Its different shade of yellow is best described as a clear serene amber-yellow of superb substance. Each large 6 inch flower is waved and scalloped in teh luxurious manner of ideally classic ruffled form. The magnificent stems have two doubled socketed branches plus spur and average 7 buds each. Tom Craig's widow graciously suggested we select and introduce into our hyrbridizing program those seedlings of the late Mr. Craig wo which we were most particularly attracted. We dedicate Amber Beauty, a descendant from his own material, to this wonderful Iris booster's memory.

Andulusian refers to something of origin to Andalusia, the southern region of Spain.
