| Arnott provides the following in The Garden;Iris Balceng Miss C. M. Owen.— Hybrid Irises promise to become plentiful, but some who are not acquainted with the dwarfer hybrids may be pleased to hear of this one, which is not only easily procured, but is pretty and inexpensive.
It is one of a small series of hybrids between I. balkana and I. Ciengalti. It is now in bloom here (May 28) and has been flowering for about a week. The flowers are well raised above the plant, and here are 8 inches or 9 inches above the level of the soil. They are a pearly white, with purple veins. It is a delicately coloured Iris and of considerable beauty. — S. Arnott, Carsethorn, By Dumfries, N.B.
