This iris (for me personally) will always be in the top five irises I grow, and ranks among the finest tall bearded irises ever introduced! It rates right up there with 'Silverado', 'Dusky Challenger' and 'Celebration Song'. If I had to give up all irises in the gardens except five, these four would stay along with 'Lorilee'.
