This is the most wonderful tall pale pink modern iris their is in my opinion. the sky blue space age horns just make it even better. we had wanted to get this iris for along time and finally recieved ours this year from Jim at Exline Iris in WV. we were lucky as we recieved two of the last four fans he has and his two have to multiply for a few years before he can sell anymore!
