| MEGGIE (Gaulter, '70) M. 36" Each $20.00. Shown in color on the cover. A uniform shade of bright rose in both standards and falls. Even, the style arms are of this same rose tint. The hafts carry a contrasting wash of rose-purple and this in turn is lit with a very thick, fiery deep orange-red beard. The falls are especially wide and flaring, the standards upright and closed. Extra large flowers on perfectly branched stems. No. 66-85. [Cooley's Iris, 1970]
| MEGGIE is described as rose colored, but the attention getting factors are the orange beard and the deep rose colored hafts. As in the case of all Gaulter introductions it has good branching. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 12.]
