From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing GRAND PARADER. TB, 42", ML. Touche X ((Lilac Champagne x Blue Sunup) x (Eleanor's Pride x Orange Pagoda)). Tall, handsome, striking--this splendidly branched, many budded beauty is indeed an exciting participant in the springtime parade of iris. A self of soft lavender-violet with a heavy overlay of medium blue. The standards are wide, well-shaped and firmly held in position. Falls, too, are wide, very flaring and bordered cinnamon-brown. Beard is reddish burnt orange. Both falls and standards are widely ruffled. Net $25.00. Les Peterson.
