See below:


CROWN PRINCE. For years Dr. Kleinsorge has been working for a true variegata with giant size, Dominion form, and on a tall and well branched stem. CROWN PRINCE is a supreme achievement, and no other variegata seen in the four corners of the country compares with it. The standards are a solid deep orange-yellow, the falls solid velvety brownish-red. CROWN PRINCE has every desired characteristic. It is the variegata that not only the Doctor has been looking for, but every other iris connoisseur as well. Very few plants. Each $25.00. Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932.
