very beautiful peachy pink colored bearded iris, just the right heighth also, not too short but not so tall it flops overs, spreads pretty quickly for a bearded iris, however be warned it does not like high humidity and moisture. it is extremely succeptible to fungus spots on the foliage, mine had this when i first planted them and i believe it was from being shipped in humid conditions as by the folling fall when it dried out these humidity caused blight spots went away on the leaves withought any fungal treatment and did not spread to any other of my iris plants before resolved thank-god. peace. mike
