From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing BUDDHA SONG (Bonnie Dunbar). MDB, 8". (Rhages X I. mellita). Here is an attractive garden flower which also carries a tremendous breeding potential, carrying the dominant amoena pattern from I. mellita. Very large standards of white tinted with violet and a violet midrib. The smaller falls are deep purple and slightly recurved, suggesting the form of an arilbred. Vigorous plants, with narrow curved leaves. We don't know of anything else that resembles it. $5.00. Riverdale Iris Garden.
From Adamgrove catalog, 1997: BUDDHA SONG (Dunbar, 70) Large, domed standards of pale lavender blue resemble exotic oncocyclus irises. Dark purple falls, tucked. White beards.The dominant amoena (Is) pattern in unusual diploid parentage could make it useful in Miniature Tall breeding. $3.00. HM 71.
