From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: STINGRAY - 36" EM-ML. Dl75-104: (CEASE-FIRE x SKY HOOKS) X SCENTED BUBBLES. A medium violet-blue bitone with blue beards tipped yellow and long violet horns. The first introduction from SCENTED BUBBLES and it's a dandy! What I dared hope might show up from this cross, even before I knew SCENTED BUBBLES could itself rebloom. Big, bubble ruffled flowers of excellent flaring form on excellent show stalks! A super increaser too and it has rebloomed some here - between August and November. Sometimes smells bad, sometimes good. Heavy pollen. $35.00
Reported Rebloom in: CA, MD, TX, UT, VA, WA, Netherlands USDA Zone 5,6,7,8,9 [The 2012 Cumulative Checklist of Reblooming Iris, p. 192]
