From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: DANCING DEB (Tomp. 1952) M.L. 38 in. (Delilah x Seashell sdlg.) x Jake. A large, beautifully formed flo,wer of clear, light heliotrope, this has very broad petals and extremely wide hafts. The petals are deeply and gracefully ruffled and the form is near perfect as the standards are beautifully arched and domed while the falls are jauntily flaring. We think this is one of the loveliest and most delightful iris we have produced and have been well pleased to find it also a favorite with every visitor to our gardens. We grow it in combination with Waltz Time which is an exact counterpart in deep cream, and with Love Story and the trio is one of the be~t-liked groups in the show garden. H. M, 1953. 3.50.
