From the 1983 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A king's tribute—ermine, silk and royal satin. Here we have a warm uniform color of "bishop's purple." This large dignified beauty has an accomplished easy grace, elegan form and luxurious violet coloring. A trilogy of merits indeed fit for a king. Note the classically poised three branched stem of 9 to 10 double socketed buds opening three flowers at a time. So floriferous! Enjoy the luxury of this handsome son of Starina X Navy Strut.
