Sweet and lovely with a fragrance to match, Peggy Sue is reminiscent of crinolines and pearls. Gentle light pink standards top paler, finely shaped falls highlighted by mandarin red beards in this darling barely bi-tone. What's better than iris season? Two iris seasons a year! Our most vigorous bloomers, these varieties offer an outstanding double feature —with richly colored, showy flowers in spring and then again months later. Iris germanica 'Peggy Sue'
