Type: Tall Bearded (TB)
Bloom Season: Early midseason
Progress in breeding a true red Iris has been slow. Here is a velvety wine-crimson red that is a glorified derivative of Oh Jamaica and Saturday Night Live. Each stalk yields 8-9 double-socketed buds, thereby providing us with a long extended bloom season. Notice also how the old gold beard glistens against the plushy sheen of the broad haft. Connoisseurs of form, color and style will appreciate this luxuriously iridescent creation.
