This award-winning tall bearded iris has a bubble ruffle flower form. The standards are golden yellow with a wine variegation, and the falls are red-black with faint whitish lines beside the antique gold beards. The flowers, lightly fragranced with a touch of spice, make striking cut flowers. Birds, bees, and butterflies love them too.
