From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: ALLEGRIA VE-15". Very much like the wonderful Onco-like Susiana Hybrid pictured in my '61 catalog. But this is essentially an Oncogelia, the only one we can grow without slightest difficulty along with our summer-irrigated Bearded Iris. You can handle it this way, or as an Aril, with no summer water. Reddest of Oncogelias, very round & Onco-like. Visitors take it for a true Onco. A beauty. Foliage dies like an Onco in fall. 32 chromosomes. Artemis (Oncogelia) X Ricardi (Bearded). Regularly $3.50; on $15 order 2 for $2.45; on $25 order 3 for $1.9S.
From Supplement To The Comprehensive Checklist of Aril and Arilbred Iris by Sharon McAllister, April 2000: ALLEGRIA AB (Louis A. Denis, R. 1929). Sdlg # NIA. DMB. Height and season NIA. Artemis X Ricardi. AIS Color Class: B (Blue self). No description in ' 1976 CL. Court of Iris:"Reddish-purple of 'Onco' form." 1929.
