From AIS Bulletin #249 April 1983 Introducing TARDETTE (William E. Jones) SDB, 12" (36 cm), M·L. A beautiful sunshine yellow self (one of the highlights of this iris is the brightness of the color) with fine form and good growing habits. Since it is from an IB X SOB cross, it is late for the SDB season, blooming with the IB and early TB irises. Being 'a little late' accounts for the name. First year blooms are a little large, but future years show much better size. Truly a bright spot in the late garden. Sdlg. 73·61A: (69·1 R: ((Patricia Craig X Blue Miller) x Grace Note) X Cotton Blossom). $7.50. Contemporary Gardens.
