See below:


From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing GALENA (Amethyst Flame x Morning Breeze) X SEA OF STARS. $25.00. This is a large iris, with extremely heavy substance. The color is magenta, and after a day in the sunshine, the falls have a white blaze below the beard. This has been the most weatherproof flower in my garden since it first bloomed in 1968. The individual flowers have taken severe rainstorms, hail, etc, and come through in excellent condition. When other flowers have torn, GALENA holds up very well. 30" tall, eight buds per stem. Blocher.
