This iris turned out just as it did in all the pictures online, full of various deep colors. It has very tall flower stems that are strong along with shorter than normal growing leaves.

WOW! I, too, am crazy about this tall stately iris! I am using it in my hybridizing effort to create other tall irises with good strong stalks that don't fall over, just like the stalks on this one. If you like tall irises, this is the one! Highly recommended
