From Bay View Gardens catalog,1988: INAUGURAL BALL, 40 inches, EML. $35.00. Nearly 200 seedlings were bloomed from this cross with several selected for further observation. Inaugural Ball is the final selection from this extraordinary cross. Tall, sturdy stalks, show branching, multi-budded and great vigor are the hallmarks of this metallic red-purple with blue beards that shine out like beacons in the night. Full "Ghio-form" with the deep bubble-ruffling you'd expect of an iris of this heritage. No. 82-124-J3: Titan's Glory X Bubbling Over.
