Here in zone 6a Michigan, my "Burnt Crisp" looks exactly like the picture and I'm well pleased with it. This is another older variety which looks like a more modern flower because of its graceful flower form. The colors are different and eye-catching, the stalks are tall and well branched for good display of the blooms, and the plant has prospered for me.

A good grower as most of Burseens' irises are. An older iris, but I still like it. The color is a bit lighter than the description here in the Arizona desert..............due to the heat and sun.

S. tan-brown; F. very dark brown, cream spray pattern at gold beard; laced; spicy fragrance. Rio de Oro X 4-52: (West Coast x Pencil Sketch).
