This is REALLY a beauty of an iris! Pictures can't do it justice. It's a little slower to grow than I'd like, but it does grow and increase. It grows to 36 inches tall.

S. deep salmon pink; style arms salmon pink; F. cream pink, heavy pink veining blended to deep salmon pink edge; beards coral, orange red in throat.
