Purchased these from Superstition Iris Gardens this past January. They arrived in July and looked great~large fat healthy rhizomes.
Not only is the bloom coloring of this iris beautiful and unusual, but it also has beautiful purple based foliage(pbf).
The blooms are small, maybe 3 1/2- 4 inches tall, but they all open together, which makes for an impressive display.
