Byzantine Art From Lowell Baumunk Iris Colorado 2001. It is listed as Sdlg. OL4. AB (OGB), 33"; The description from the AIS Check List database is as follows: "S. medium lavender, midrib tan; style arms tan, blending to lavender at crests; F. tan, very dark red signal with red overlay extending 3/4" from signal; beards yellowish brown. Onlooker X unknown." I only planted this iris in July 2006, and it has bloomed on two stems during the same day in 2007. Arilbreds are new territory for me and they seem quite easily grown since I did nothing special for it. From what I've learned they grow best in very well drained soil with minimal watering.
