From the 1990 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Blenheim Royal offers a peerless combination of rich royal purple coloration and exquisitely ruffled flower form. Note the depth of this intense velvety color. Sturdy stems sport 6-7 buds on three branches. Supremely smooth and clasically formed, Blenheim Royal is such an absolutely satisfying regal flower.
