| From AIS Bulletin #181 April 1966. Introducing NINEVEH E 28" Bang X Capitola. Nineveh was the wicked Assyrian capital of biblical times. The iris Nineveh looks wicked! Silken standards of magenta-toned violet; falls blended magenta and tan, the tan predominating in warm weather. Beards a mysterious rust-brown. Blooms large, long-lasting, with rounded falls that are flared or even upswept at the edges. Stalks carry three to five blossoms; several stalks per rhizome when well grown. Very limited fertility. Kerr Regional Award 1965. HC (18 votes) 1965. $20.00. Keith Keppel.
