Siberian Iris 'DREAMING OF YOU'

'Dreaming of You' is in a word, 'Elegant'
It give's me great delight to display another standout Siberian from the talented hybridizing duo, Dunlop & Cole. Introduced last season 2008 by Fieldstone Gardens Maine,USA.

From Fieldstone Gardens Catalogue 2008
DREAMING OF YOU (Jeff Dunlop,R. 2007). Sdlg. 994336-1T. SIB (tet), 26" (66cm), Mid to Late. Ruffled light yellow near amoena. S. near white, slightly darker veins near center base; style arms very light yellow with darker midribs. Falls light yellow (RHS 4B) with deep yellow hafts, signal area and throat. Extravagant ruffling overall, and probably the most ruffled Siberian we know. Flower fades to very light yellow (RHS 4D) at the end of the bloom period. The first color fast yellow tetraploid with good form and great ruffling. One branch with 3-4 blooms. McEwen T9/38-1 X McEwen T9 95/94-9. Dunlop & Cole, Fieldstone Gardens, 2008.
