(TB) 'Sailor Boy'

1942, Washington

'Sailor Boy' (Thomas Washington, R. 1941) TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class R4M.

SAILOR BOY (Washington 1942) M. L. A deep strawberry red self that stands out in glowing perfection in the garden. A seedling from 'Maya', it is larger in size with broader standards and more flaring falls. The smooth uniform color and firm substance of the standards and falls with the even placement of the flowers on well branched stalks give this iris an especially prominent place in this class of iris. Rich orange beard. 36 in. $10.00. [Fairmount Gardens Catalog. Summer 1942, Spring 1943, Lowell, Massachusetts]
