Original catalog description: FLYING REPEATER (Austin '62) L-30". World's first Re-Bloomer to flaunt spoons & flounces of newly released SPACE-AGE Iris. Appropriately named, flowers look as if winged, ready to fly off into space. The 3 ascending spoons may enlarge to full-fledged folded flounces 1 3/4" wide, 2" long. Called a "repeater" because it not only blooms in spring, like other spooned iris, but is the only spooned one to repeat in the fall. In mild climates fall bloom continues on into winter. A delectable soft pink with deep orange beard. Pollen plentiful; entirely unsurpassed by any other iris as a breeder for the ambitious hybridizer who sets his goals HIGH, aiming at what will soon be greatest sensation of all---world's first fully flounced iris that reblooms heavily in summer & fall. [Happy Birthday X Unicorn].......Regularly $25.00; on $35 order $16.95. [Lloyd Austin's Iris Color Guidebook, Rainbow Gardens Catalog, 1962].
