This is very similar to Rebecca Perret but is more hardy in northern climate. One of the last irises to make a showing and what a nice one with which to leave the season! I'm always struck with how clean and fresh the flowers appear. The blue of the falls is such a nice wash before the silver-white standards, and the yellow-orange beards finish the fresh look. One of my all time favorites. (Growing in zone 3-4)
