ADORING GLANCES: (O. D. Niswonger, R. 1992). Sdlg. SDB 18-88. SDB 12" (30 cm) M. "S. light grey with chartreuse infusion; F. same, with deeper chartreuse spot around blue beard. Chubby Cheeks X unknown., Cape Iris 1992." I got this SDB in a collection directly from Cape Iris Gardens. It has its own unique color blend as described in the official description above, however I see it more as a pale creamy primrose. What really sets this iris off are the blue style arms which attract attention at once. Very nice!
