| SAN FRANCISCO. A four-foot plicata that has been awarded the Dykes medal by the American Iris Society. No other plicata approaches it in size and grandeur, heaviness of texture, or wide and low branching habit. It is not an iris for severe climates, but is worth the protection of a box or glass covering during the winter. In warmer sections it grows perfectly and is one of the truly "greats" of the iris world. At the price quoted it is worth trying even if you fail with it. Each $2.00; three for $5.25; ten for $15.00 [Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932]
