Royal Slippers is a great grower and increaser. It has wonderful branching with 9 buds (some triple socket-ted). It won the best seedling award at the TAIS Spring show.

It blooms very early to early midseason. 37Inches tall. An all around great iris.

Parentage: Select Circle x Snowbrook. (It can be found at RockyTop Gardens in Tenn.)
