Roland Dejoux's comment: The main reason why i've registered this iris is for it's striking erect horns. It is also a strong plant, wind resistant, that grows fast and blooms a lot! René dauphin's wife's mother was particularly fond of the colour blue, therefore 'Mammy Blue'.
'Mammy Blue' (Roland Dejoux pour René Dauphin R. 2008). TB, 105 cms, Amoena plicata, Pétales blanc infusé de mauve; sépales bleu ardoise bordés blanc infusé de mauve, striés brun aux épaules; barbes orange prolongées d'un éperon bleu ardoise en forme de cornes. 'Magic Man' X 'Sky Hooks'
Commentaire de Roland Dejoux: j'ai enregitré cet iris pour son éperon très originale en forme de cornes . De plus, c'est une plante robuste, solide au vent malgré sa grande taille, florifère et à gros développement . 'Mammy Blue' est un hommage à la maman de Colette Clavel, la compagne de René dauphin. Elle aimait tout particulierement la couleur bleue.
