Black Tie Affair
Tall Bearded Iris 91cm.
Mid Season flowering, May in the UK. Personally I notice a slight fragrance.
Inky, velvety black-purple Self, with black beards. Of course no iris is true 'black' but this iris will stand out in any border.
Hybridised by Schreiner 1993 from many crosses including Black Dragon, Titan's Glory, Broadway Star, Blue Mountains, Toll Gate and After Dark.
Receiving an Honourable Mention in 1995 and an Award of Merit in 1997.
