KISS ME QUICK: (Barry Blyth, R. 1996). Sdlg. D8-3. SDB 15" (38 cm) ML. "S. light pink; F. white, 1/4" light pink plicata edge; beards white, hairs tipped tangerine. Smoky Trail X A44-2, Razoo sib., Tempo Two 1996/97." This information was researched from the American Iris Society. This is probably one of the finest SDB's I grow. The flowers alone are reason enough, but it offers more. Strong growth, great blooms, quick increase and bone chilling hardiness. If I didn't rate it on anything but color and appearance alone, I would still rate it positive. But Kiss Me Quick has all the great qualities of a good garden iris!
