| From Tell’s Iris Gardens catalog,1959: MADEMOISELLE (Larry Gaulter, Castro Valley, Calif.) Midseason-Late. 38". (Lavenesque x Pathfinder.) A masterpiece of iris sculpture. These blooms look to have been fashioned by some master-maker of ceramics so heavy is the substance and so deftly are the full, wide, falls gently ruffled and held rigidly, but gracefully flared. The falls are so wide at the hafts that they almost touch.The color is lavender-rose and the hafts are smoothly flushed (brushed) sienna. Heavy stalks bear up the very large blooms and many buds to perfection . MADEMOISELLE is indeed,a triumph in hybridizing and with this marvelous pedigree will be in great demand by hybridizers who like quality. She should be useful in breeding this color, orchids, pinks, blends and perhaps yellows and other by-products. We envision great seedlings from this fine iris crossed with Gay Adventure and its sisters, LOVELY DIANA, PRETTY CAROL, GRACELLE, AMETHYST FLAME, ANEMBO, CHARMED LAND, LILAC BOUQUET and other grand things. Because of its late blooming season in the home area few judges have seen this fine iris, but we know it has a long and brilliant career ahead both in popularity and for hybridizing. Originally registered as FOREVER SPRING which name had already been taken. We mention this since several fanciers, including myself, thought this was to be its name. No.56-16. $25.00
