FAIRY LUSTRE (Washington 1940) M. Through error in registration of the name Moon Mist when already given to another breeder the name of this iris has been changed to Fairy Lustre. The Honorable mention given to Moon Mist last season was to this iris and not to the iris Moon Mist in the A. I. S. Check List. A light primrose yellow self with such firm substance that the flower seems like smooth lustrous satin. The broad firmly domed standards are clear even yellow. The large firm falls are semiflaring and slightly ruffled at the edge. Primrose beard. The flowers are not marred by any other color or venation, and this with the symmetry of form and fine branching give this iris a prominent place among the best yellows. H. M. A. I. S. 1940. Per. R. 86 1941. 38 in. $6.00. [Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, A Selected List of Tall Bearded Iris. Summer 1942-Spring 1943].
