Lady of the Night
Type: Border Bearded (BB)
Originator: Black, Paul
Bloom Season: Late to Very Late
Awards: KM '14.
My goodness! Lady of the Night is a sure bet to gain accolades. Itís a startling sight - with huge yellow beards on black purple, cup- shaped falls. Dark purple standards are only a shade lighter. Now, to see such huge and bold contrasting beards, on a near-black, startles they eye. Picasso used to love using complementary colors, (like yellow and violet) resulting in bold paintings. This very late-blooming Border Bearded, by Paul Black, one of our finest hybridizers, is the 2014 Knowlton Medal winner, the top award for Border Bearded Iris. An abundance of buds and slight musky fragrance.
