Description

This sweetly fragrant Australian import features shapely burgundy-rose standards that brighten at their lacy edges—an effect so enthralling it just had to be repeated on the edges of the falls. For a gorgeous colour pop, look no further than the plum centres and warm red swatches on the falls. Excellent branching gives these blooms the ideal platform to be admired. Iris germanica
