| DEPUTE NOMBLOT. The world's greatest iris. Blooming for the first time in America during the season of 1930, it almost bowled over all who saw it. During the past season it has proven worthy of first impressions, and from England and France, as well as from all sections of this country, come songs of praise for this imposing giant of the race. Standards light glowing rosy-purple, overlaid bronzy-gold. Falls very wide, spreading, purplish garnet-red, shading to lighter rosy-bronze at the edge. Deep orange beard. Over four feet tall, wonderfully well branched. DEPUTE NOMBLOT received a certificate of merit in 1929 at the Paris show, and in 1930 was awarded the Dykes medal. Each $20.00; three for $50.00.

| From Elizabeth Hardee Iris Garden catalog, 1932: DEPUTE NOMBLOT (Day-pue-tay' Nome-Blow) (Cayeux 1929) M. 52" F. A really magnificent iris of great beauty of coloring, form and carriage. The flowers are large and well proportioned on very tall and widely branched stems. S. coppery red, flushed golden bronze. Falls wide and spreading, of a very rich shade of deep claret crimson. The entire flower seems lightly dusted with a fine golden powder which sparkles and glistens in the sunlight. English and French experts acclaim this as Cayeux’s finest achievement. (Awarded the Dykes Medal for 1930 by the N.H.F.). 20.00.
