- "In the second half of the summer we are pleased with the Japanese irises received as a result of crossing varieties with wild species collected under Vladivostok. It is the ALTAY, who for many years successfully winters and blooms in St. Petersburg gardens" (N. Alexandrova, Irises of Russia, 2015). -- Main.ruiris - 02 Jan 2019
