pre 1950, Unknown .............................related links ...Novelty Iris
The cultivar found in the trade today is not the registered cultivar 'Zebra' which had white flowers striped blue. Apparently that cultivar has disappeared and a variety of Iris pallida
with yellow striped foliage has assumed this name. The first promotion of the new 'Zebra' seemed to be in the old Lloyd Austin Catalogs of his Rainbow Gardens. It has become a popular plant with landscapers in some parts of the USA. A close relative is 'Argentea'
which is a pallida with white striped foliage.
| From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: ZEBRA (Pallida variegata) M-30". A novelty needed in every garden. Leaves striped in creamy yellow & green in a pattern much like that of a zebra. Has striking ornamental value from March to Nov. Just the thing for individualistic flower arrangements and corsages. Flowers lightblue. Best used as edgings or clumps to attract attention, so I give you special group prices. See Ektachrome. 2 for $1.95; on $10 order 3 for $1.9S; on $25 order 4 for $1.95.
