| From Bonnewitz catalog, 1928: ARIEL (Murrell). "The color is quite unique—a lovely shade of soft, clear, bright harebell blue, standards and falls being exactly similar in tone and of a different and more definite, true, pale blue than is found in any other variety we have yet seen. It is sweetly scented. The plant is an exceedingly good grower, with stiff, slender foliage, very free flowering, with erect flower stems about three feet high." This is the originator’s own description, and as it bloomed in our garden this year, it pleased us even better than the printed description. It is a "Garden Iris" for mass planting where this particular color is desired. $ 5.00.
