RESTLESS SPIRIT  (Keppel 2017) EM 36” TB (Secret Rites X Flame Amber) #07-99A.

Another expression of the “dark top” pattern, but with additional subtle fall blendings for interest. Standards veronica violet shaded dove grey toward edge. Falls blended ecru to rosy beige at the hafts, remainder oyster to amber white, with minuet violet center suffusion. Beards are burnt sienna, with just a faint cast of lavender at the end. Another good garden iris, with excellent marks for increase, branching and buds, plus long season of bloom. HM 2019  $10.00
