| From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1958: SILKEN DALLIANCE (H. Senior Fothergill, London, England). Early. 28 inches. (Stolonifera x Bright Melody.) Quite the most charming regalia-tall bearded hybrid I have seen. Blooming at the end of the Dwarf season this intriguing flower will capture your heart. Striking in the garden and unusual under artificial light. The color is violet-blue with edges of all petals bordered in sienna brown. Grand potential breeder and a vigorous hybrid. $10.00
