With dramatically dark standards and rich purple plicata on buff falls, Drama Queen Bearded Iris is ready for its closeup. It's easy to see why this rising star has been awarded time and time again for its amazing performance. Drama Queen's standards stand tall in near-solid blackish purple, fading toward a faint buff at the base and blending into the plicata of the falls. Below, that same cyclamen-purple hue is splashed with a blaze of golden color and distinct veining. Beards are a rusty orange that pair nicely with the patina-like interaction of white and dark. Drama Queen is an early-to-mid season iris that you won't want to miss! Iris Germanica 'Drama Queen'
