Sunrise Splendor was the subject of our Annual Naming Contest. Thank you to Myra W. of Wyoming for her inspired choice, which she said came to her because the iris reminded her of a sunrise in the Rockies. Sunrise Splendor’s standards are pure white and well-formed. Gold imbues the base of the standards as well as the midribs. The rounded falls’ white ground has gold-embossed shoulders and a soul-stirring purple which flows outward from the fat bright orange beard. Note the rim of the petals: the standards feature a pencil thin gilt line, and the falls a wider amber border. 400 years ago Carolus Clusius wrote the colors of iris vary in a wonderful way. If he’d seen this offering, he might have said, “The kids got into the paints again.” It’s hard to take your eyes off of it.  Seedling #C843-3
