| Blue-white or very pale blue irises are another special interest of ours. Without a doubt the most outstanding one in this class is HIGH ABOVE (DeForest '61). It is a broad, delightfully formed pale blue which is extremely vigorous, producing several bloomstocks in one year. This is one of our "pets."
