From the 1995 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This mariner's delight enviably has the cleanest cerulean blue shading of any Iris we know. Bouncy ruffled petals weave a wavy rhythmic spell while milky beards sparkle like whitecaps on crest ocean swells. It boasts sturdy stems with three to four branches yielding 9 to 12 blooms each.
