Mr. Wentworth Caldwell of Nashville, Tenn. is one of the younger generation of iris enthusiasts for which that city is justly famous. He is a delightful southern gentleman and is all too modest about his hobby of breeding iris. I have watched his seedlings with great interest for several years, and last season chose his lovely iris 'Tishomingo'
as being most worthy of introduction. It is a large clear light Wistaria blue self of very flaring form and the strongest smooth substance I have ever seen in an iris bloom.
Tall Bearded: 'Chavanon'
