This is one of the most stunning irises I've seen of late. The yellow rim on the standards seem to make the iris "pop". It grows to 36 inches tall, has good branching, good substance, and looks to be an all around great irises. It has only given me 2 increases this year, but I expect it to take off this year - - like many of Fred Kerr's irises usually do. :-)
