| From Tell’s Iris Gardens catalog,1959: JUNE'S SISTER (Tell Muhlestein.) Early-Midseason-Late. 36 inches. (Party Dress x Pink Fulfillment). This is a sister to JUNE MEREDITH, FIRST CURTAIN AND LATE APRICOT, and is the parent of Mrs. Hamblen's Glittering Amber. When you see JUNE'S SISTER you will know where Glittering Amber inherited its ruffling and open standards as well as much of its coloring. Breeders have continued to ask for this for breeding purposes, so I have decided to give her a name in honor of June Meredith's lovely sister Donna Bennett (my niece) living in Bountiful, Utah. The color of this iris is a blend of apricots. The ruffled standards are open, but retain their position the life of the flower. The falls are likewise ruffled, are very wide, round and flare almost horizontally. JUNE'S SISTER is proving a fine parent giving width to it sseedlings and should, if crossed to things with closed or domed standards, produce fine pinks,apricots, orchids and many other colors. Widely distributed under number 51-11E. $5.00
