Siberian Iris 'BELIEVE IN ANGELS'
Emphasis is on form with this new white Siberian iris. Horizontally flaring, flat flowers are ruffled to the extreme! Newly opened flowers have pale yellow falls that become creamy white by the second day with yellow veining streaming from the small lemon-yellow signals. You will believe!
