References

From AIS Bulletin #181 April 1966. Introducing BABBLING BROOK M 38" Galilee X Symphony. With color even a bit bluer than Galilee, this light French blue is invariably chosen by visitors as the "bluest blue" in the garden. Add ruffling that puts both parents to shame, light texture veining, and pale lemon beards. Both the exquisite form and the clarity of color set it apart. Good growth habits; an easy parent. HC (12 votes) 1965. $25.00. Keith Keppel.
BABBLING BROOK (Keppel '66). A number one selection of quality throughout our area-a variety abounded with beautifully ruffled form and clean coloration. Labeled French Blue, this iris looks very blue, devoid of lavender influences and strengthened by light texture veining in the falls. The plant is ultra-vigorous and produces strong, healthy foliage. Stems are erect and adequately branched. One of the finest additions in this class in many seasons and can be faulted here only in its failure to bloom every year, even when established. [Roger R. Nelson, “Your More Music Survey,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 197 (April 1970): 8.]
