| From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1957: SURPRISE PARTY (Kieinsorge 1955) Each 6.00. Dr. Kleinsorge, the originator of many of our finest iris, never fails to come up with another surprise. The latest one is this new combination of pastel hues: rosy lavender standards and golden apricot falls, a definite contrast of great garden value. Extra well branched stems of 36 inches present the generous-sized, well modeled flowers to best advantage.
