Want to see an Iris comparable to Georgia O'Keefe's painting? The swarthy shade of this onyx is as black as a tinker's pot. Livid ebony beards enhance the sense of unity. Velvety petals have superb ruffling, unparalleled in a sable-colored Iris until now. Exuberant well-branched stems have triple-socketed buds and consistently yield 9 to 12 flowers each. This imminent champion, unquestionably will carry away the dark crown.
