Rare and unusual novelty iris! 4 of everything on it's terminal bud. Grows well and has nice branching. The coloring is quite unique too.

A Novelty Iris - Terminal bud has the 4-4-4 factor and is perfectly balanced. The top bud only will bloom with the 4-4-4 factor and is consistent on 75-80% of all stalks. M,L. 35" tall.

9-11 buds. Nicely ruffled! Note: the warmer the temps get - - the deeper the lavender wash becomes on it's falls as it opens! The cooler the temps are - the falls will likely resemble the standards in it's coloring.

Seedling # SHFOF 02-1. (Sapphire Hills x Pencil Sketch) x Flights of Fancy.
