From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1958: FILAGREE (Jim Melrose) 34" (Truly Yours X Lilac Lane). The first iris introduction of the originator of Melrose Gardens, and one that we are proud of. Some old master of goldsmithy could have created the delicate, intricate pattern of this iris, and indeed he might have considered it one of his masterpieces, for as an iris, this is a new and important advance. The enchantment of the flower is in the intricate lacing around the edges of the petals, like the fanciful filagree work that the artisans have accomplished with precious metals. And the color is as rich and polished, a clear and clean medium yellow, vigorously shining. Husky plants. Good increase. Floriferous. $15.00
