One Man Show

'Action Packed' (TB Paul Black '11)
It was love at first sight.  This was a Mid-America introduction in 2011. I was so fascinated by what I was seeing that I had to have it.  It's not a particularly vigorous grower but it is unique.  There are so many variations on a theme in the iris world, but this is one of a kind.

Golden cream standards are deeply veined with wine.  They stand erect above an almost black-maroon standards. Beneath a showy beard, rays off pure white radiate.  Action Packed sets a tone of drama. Paul Black's genius in the garden is evident.
