This is it's first year with me. Lovely form, eye catching color with that light beard................and it's increasing rapidly. I am hoping for rebloom with this one.

I am very impressed with this iris. It's a strong grower with lots of blooms. I received it as a bonus plant from Sutton's in 2007, and for a first year bloomer last year it sent up three stalks right away and even rewarded me with a two-stalk rebloom in June-July. For me it's a deep blue flower with nice contrasting beards and lots of ruffles, and it really holds the color and stands up well in our Bakersfield heat.
