| From AIS Bulletin #281 April 1991 Introducing PHIL EDINGER (Hager '91) NON-BEARDED hybrid. This is a sibling to the previously introduced seedling from Holden Clough that was named ROY DAVIDSON. Roy and Phil were the first to discover a seed on that parent iris. This one differs in that the signals are a darker brown with brown veining traces out over the deep yellow falls. Almost no standards, but they are blended brown also. Both of these hybrids are exceptionally vigorous in acid soils with plenty of water. $25.00. Melrose Gardens.
