It's a decent grower and increaser, but it doesn't grow 42 inches tall as it does in Colorado for the hybridizer. Here it is about 30 inches tall year after year. I do like the coloring on this iris................ very spring like!

S. cream; style arms cream; F. cream, deeper tone extending from hafts along edges, lavender blaze upon opening, hafts copper orange; beards tangerine.
