TB - Historic - Purple Bi-Tone
'Cat Whiskers' is my  name for this iris.

This is one of a select variety of 'old-fashioned' iris I still have in my gardens.
Purple standards, deeper purple falls with marking resembling "Cat Whiskers." Beards are light yellow. This iris bloomed in May-June last year (2011), zone 5-6. It lasts a long time in the garden. I keep a hillside of this iris because it's just special.
