Tall Bearded Iris MORNING MAIL
Now if you were delivered this iris in the 'Morning Mail' it would make your day, don't you think?? A stand-out pure orchid-lilac self with a distinctly bright tangerine red beard . Extremely tough and resilient with great branching and a extended bloom period. Absolutely huge carrying power in the garden.

About Town is proving to be an amazing parent for Self's and Bicolours. This one is a complete self of vibrant orchid lilac with tangerine red beards. Lovely branching with at least 4 places, so a high bud count. Proving to be a good parent and will win at the shows no doubt. (Cloud Berry X About Town)
