Amazingly bright in a clump, 8-9 buds on 3 branches, brilliant yellow hafts with a 1/2” band of orange on the falls, Terry Aitken says of his gem, “It’s a screamer.” The name came to him while he was sitting in traffic on a 100 degree day, watching fire hoses attempt to fix a malfunctioning upraised bridge. “Heat does wondrous things for orange Irises,” he adds.
