From Schreiner’s catalog, 1953: BLUE SAPPHIRE (Schreiner 1953) E. 40". To many flower lovers, the chief glory of iris are the blues, which have scarcely any important competition in the flower kingdom except among delphiniums. Yet, strangely, outstanding light blue iris are not numerous. Here is one of extra large size and exquisite purity which we feel will take its place alongside Helen McGregor, Distance and Jane Phillips. A seedling of Chivalry and Snow Flurry, BLUE SAPPHIRE makes a magnificent clump, exhibiting floriferousness and stalwart poise. Its chamring, insouciant ruffling belies its extraordinarily heavy substance. A superb background iris tha tthe wind won't blow over nor rain injure. A very blue blue, like a silvery Jane Phillips. Our picture on page 49 does not do justice to this outstandingly valuable blue. No. G28A. $15.00.
