COLOR COORDINATING YOUR IRIS BEDS WITH OTHER IRISES

Susanne Holland Spicker

If forced to name my favorite Louisiana irises, this one would probably be at the top of the list.  It is a great garden iris and is simply beautiful.  And, what a name.  (Especially when Louisiana politicians are so well known for their "hush money"!)
