(1913) Late flowering Iris

Gardeners' Chronicle p.108, August 9, 1913

Late Flowering Iris.- We are sending you herewith a few blooms of an Iris now in flower with us. The variety is 'Mrs. Alan Gray', and is one of the many beautiful hybrids raised by the late Sir Michael Foster. It is not uncommon for some of the varieties of Iris germanica to throw an occasional bloom in late summer, but we have noticed in regard to this variety ever since it has been in our nursery that it flowers regularly twice a year, not here and there a spike, but nearly every plant. We have a bed containing some five or six hundred plants, and the effect at the present time is quite beautiful. E. Wallace and Co., Colchester.
