| From AIS Bulletin #213 April 1974 Introducing LIZ (Gatty) M, 34". Ruffled Valentine X Rippling Waters. Very ruffled, well laced, and ultra-feminine. A pale, creamy, salmon-toned pink, just an almost imperceptible shade deeper than her sib, Princess. Tangerine-orange beard, white at tip. Two or three branches plus terminal, six buds. Fertile both ways. Named for Liz Aulicky, in whose New Jersey garden this iris first bloomed as a seedling. EC (best seedling in show, Oakland) '71. EC (best seedling in show, Concord) '72. HC '72. Region 14 Seedling Cup '73. $25.00. Keith Keppel.
LIZ (Gatty), another future introduction, is a warm pink that we liked a little better than its parent, Princess. Its ruffled, broad bloom flares a little more, and the coral beard is very attractive. As we saw it, the stalks had five buds and could have used another branch.
