CALIZONA GOLD is the name-sake iris for the 2012 AIS Convention. This is a strong growing, good increasing plant with decent branching. The flower itself will hold up in 100 degree heat, and strong winds. Great substance. 34-36 inches tall. Blooms mid to mid-late during bloom season.

Parentage: Whispering Spirits x Arizona Sandstone. (This iris can be found at Stanton's Iris Gardens, in CA.)
