This diadem will absolutely dazzle you with its stunning contrast of color magic. Note how the crystalline white ground color is precisely stitched with a 1/4 to 1/2 inch plicata edge of dusky cyanine blue-violet. Each well-branched stalk sports 7 to 9 large six-inch flowers with a slight ruffle on their edges. Add the crowning touch of sparkling diamond-like beards tipped lemon yellow and we have perfection indeed. Named to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the world-renowned Presby Memorial Iris Gardens in Montclair, New Jersey.
