| From AIS Bulletin #213 April 1974 Introducing PRESUMPTION-We boldly predict this variety will open new vistas. The best grower in the garden, hardy, floriferous. Many siblings were gorgeous. This one is only showy! Light yellow ground with reddish redviolet markings. The only remontant from the cross of House of Lords X Da Capo. It is fertile both ways and proved an excellent parent last fall when its first seedlings bloomed. Stalks 35", well branched. Reblooms early October. Sdlg. 68-114-B. $20.00. Avonbank Iris Gardens.
