Arched falis open with bright lemon gold ground which ages to a softer creamy yellow. Dark burgundy maroon peppering and veining obscures the upper falI, continuing as a wide dotted margin, more solid at the distal tip. Beards inconspicuous, brown. Great color contrast gives garden impact.

Gardening Tips
Irises will absolutely not tolerate wet feet (too much water will cause the rhizomes to rot) and require very well-drained soil at all times of the year.
