Purchased this Iris last season and I am mighty glad I did, I just love irises that push the Envelope in colour tones and form. The slightly fragrant 'Imprimis' has came back into vogue in some breeding circles and Dave Niswonger recently used it as the Pollen Parent on his 2000 Introduction MILK ON APRICOTS which is a startling Amoena
So we may as well see what the man himself has to say about it, Barry Blyth writes his opinion in his
One of our favourites and sure to please those looking for something different. The name means "In the First Place'. The standards are icy oyster and the falls are smoky rose and the beards are bronze with tangerine in the throat. Wide and ruffled with super branching. Will win on the show bench. It is a super parent and it has nice light perfume. (Reciprocal cross of Breezes).
