As a collector this is one of the finest irises I've ever grown of any class. It has been planted here less than 10 months, came through a late week of severe freezes and yet bloomed on three stems. It is from Paul Black 2006 and the listed parentage is Island Sun sib X Experiment. I might add that in this area winters can be severe, and late spring freezes are not unheard of. However, the freezes across a wide eastern region of the U. S. in the second week of April led to a lot of perennial plant and fruit tree damage. This little iris withstood it all.
