Iris MDB – Buckeye Baby

By Willott – 1986

This cute little iris is fast growing and very hardy.  It is about 4 inches tall and blooms early. It is slightly ruffled with bright yellow standards.  The falls are reddish brown and are edged with the same yellow as the standards.  The beards are orange/yellow.

Parentage:  (Mystic Midnight x Banbury Ruffles) x Inca Idol



Iris Dwarf Atroviolacea

This MDB (Miniature Dwarf Bearded) Iris is only 3-4 inches high. The falls and standards are both violet purple with white to light lavender beards.

They are soooooo cute and are one of the very first irises to bloom. They will soon be found in little patches all around your yard because they multiply quickly.

Miniature tall bearded iris (MTB); these are about 18 inches tall with 3 inch flowers.  Culture is just as for tall bearded iris.  This selection produces light yellow standards that are veined with purple at the base and dusky-purple falls that have a narrow yellow margin; elegant.
