From Fairmount Gardens, 1955: SPANISH MAIN (Wills 1955) M. Brilliant and colorful, this large flowered blend instantly catches the eye of garden visitors. A big bold bloom with closely domed standards of copper (Majolica 09/1) flushed with golden brown (Burnt Orange 014). The falls are broad and semi-flaring of the same colors with a rich gold haft extending to the end of the full yellow beard. The flowers are lightly ruffled with firm texture and are carried on well branched stalks. The Color Chart is lacking in copper and brown tones so it is difficult to describe this iris, it must be seen to appreciate the glowing coalescence of color. 38 in. $15.00
