From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing PERFUME COUNTER. The intense, wonderfully sweet fragrance is only the first feature of this lovely violet iris. Bright in hue, it flares to 7-1/2", with excellent substance and the straight stems are adequately branched to show off the large flowers. Standards are tightly swirled and falls are near horizontal with the tips still further upturned. Above all that, however, it reblooms very freely in late September and October as well as spring. It is a strong and vigorous grower. Sdlg. 67-26-J, sib. to Jolly Goliath. $25.00. Avonbank.
