Color Strokes Bearded German Iris

Here's an eye-catching modern hybrid that offers lush, well-formed blooms in a magnificent and totally unique coloration.

Strong stems keep flowers standing tall in cutting gardens and sunny borders. This is an easy-to-grow iris with flair for days. Iris germanica 'Color Strokes'

Carmine red plicata markings overlay the white sunburst, fashioning a stunning contrast with the flame-red outer falls. The zestful orange-gold beard both enriches the radiant falls and complements the pristine white standards. Color Strokes' eye-catching color is a wonderful way to welcome the day. Its impressive stem dependably produces three branches and 6-7 buds. (Shreiner's Iris website)
