Blooming Today TB Perfume Counter

  • Subject: [PHOTO] [iris-photos] Blooming Today TB Perfume Counter

Here is an apt description that I got from somewhere:
 
(Zurbrigg '72) This variety was raised in 1972 and made a sensation and a ?scentsation? for its ability to re-bloom in the fall and for the haunting and sinfully delicious sweet perfume it releases. This re-bloom quality is more prevalent in the southern states and at the time of its introduction re-bloomers were very rare. The petals on this variety are all violet blue with some whiteness toward the center.  The vivid yellow-orange beard is especially eye catching. I always love to wonder how plants get their names, some being obscure while others are named perfectly such as this one.
