An A+ iris in every way. Wonderful form, wonderful colors, wonderful branching, and it's a great grower & good increaser. Every garden should have this one! Highly recommended! They don't get much better than this.

Grows to 36 inches tall. S. and style arms cream yellow; F. white, wide blue band diffusing to center, wide yellow hafts; beards orange, white at end; ** slight sweet fragrance.

This plant performed beautifully in its first blooming season. Initially seemed to be a slow grower and then really exploded, putting fans up everywhere. "Designer's Art" is a child of "Queen's Circle." Its wonderful pastel color really adds to the overall effect of an iris bed. I've highly recommended this plant to other gardening friends.
