24th June 2007
A fantastic variety, the lilac double flowers are heavily veined with purple.
Raised by Walter Marx and registered in 1955, the Walters Gardens catalogue for 1955 says:
SORCERERSTRIUMPH (Marx 1955). Each $7.50 Our finest veined iris with the sharpest and most contrasting colour pattern of all. Extravagant and bizarre an exotic flower
indeed suggestive of the Orient. Lightly ruffled double flowers, both standards and falls pure white with wide spaced red purple pencilling.
The brilliant purple styles stand out in bold relief and the deep orange spears add an extra dash of colour. An elegantly formed flower and one of the most striking
varieties in our entire collection. Midseason to late.
Mine appears to be true to name.
