From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1951: DELTA COUNTRY. (Reg. 1950). A cross of Dixie Deb X (Maringouin Fulva X Kraemer's Yellow). Although both parents are early, this yellow is late and is in bloom when other yellows are gone. Narrow, clean foliage and graceful stalks bearing 3 open flat, ruffled flowers of medium size. Color is a bright glistening yellow and all flowers borne during its first season had a striking, well-defined orange signal patch on petals and sepals. Unusually good grower. As a first year seedling it produced 21 fans, of which 6 made bloom stalks. Foliage clean, stems slender. 36 inches. Hardy. Late. $12.50.
