Stands and falls soft jacaranda blue, veined darker; falls with bright lime green steeple signal; style arms jacaranda blue, cream side rim; lightly ruffled; height 40"; mid-season blooms.

Although this Iris is listed as a mid-season bloomer: it blooms very early here, one of my earliest, in fact. A very tall and vigorous grower.
