Tall Bearded Iris 91cm. This is a 'love it or leave it' unusual Broken pattern bloom, exclusive to Chailey Iris Garden.
Mid Season flowering, May and June in the UK.
Multi-coloured pastel, tan background with slightly darker netted overlay with the inclusions of light yellow and warm lavender, plus random red-grape highlights. Style arms in the same mottled colours and light orange-tan beards.
Hybridised by Brad Kasperek in 2001 from Tiger Honey X Stardust Memories.
I'm not sure if Brad and Kathie's Utah nursery, Zebra Gardens, is still going, but I'm glad we managed to stock this really unusual 'Broken' iris.
Orders shipped in September.
