Type: Tall Bearded (TB)
Bloom Season: Early Season
As illustrated in our photo, Oldie Goldie is a dusky gold with an agreeable infusion of lavender at the base of the standards. It is rather elongated, and very luxurious. With hafts turned up like a cup, and its corrugated crimping, you can almost touch the substance. Blooming early in the season, Oldie Goldie towers 37” and features 7” blossoms. Hafts are shaded a pale red. Such a dynamic shade of color makes for an intriguing entry in 2020, a century after the forming of The American Iris Society. Even as it gives us untold pleasure today, we celebrate its harkening back to oldie goldies of halcyon years. Classics earn the sobriquet Oldie Goldie.
