One of the most beautiful deep purpley-magenta iris with the most brilliant bright blue throat or veining on the stripe of the beard below the horns that will make you salivate. this is also one of the tallest varieties of TB iris. can reach over 49 inches tall, so i planted mine with 'hook' and 'carl and sissy' TB iris which are the other two tallest of the tall TB varieties that get 48-56 inches too!!!. mike.
