| U.S.S. CONCORD (Blocher '65). Despite a desire to avoid a "broken record" sound, I feel required to repeat the phrase 'an overlooked variety' in my description of U.S.S. CONCORD. Easily the finest deep blue to date in all around excellence and a worthy advancement from the established standard, ALLEGIANCE. Color is sultry, smooth and really deep blue in its makeup. The form is wide, symmetrically balanced, and lightly ruffled. This late blooming variety grows very freely and produces 4-way branched stems amid very deep blue green, healthy foliage. After seasons of evaluation the only shortcoming I can see is it blooms so late that most judges miss it. [Roger R. Nelson, “Your More Music Survey,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 197 (April 1970): 9.]
