1896, Iris Assyriaca by Max Leichtlin

Garden And Forest p196, May 13, 1896

Notes from Baden-Baden.


Iris Assyriaca is new and a showy species. It is a Juno of the Caucasica stamp, with ample foliage, and the flowers, of a milky white, or sometimes with a shade of blue, are produced in numbers all along the stem. From five to seven are open at once, and they last for three weeks.

Baden-Baden. Max Leichtlin.
