The color of this remarkable iris is just a shade deeper than that of William Mohr, but the attractive veining is retained in an immense flower that seems even bigger than William Mohr, due to its flaring falls. Five to six blooms with "pogon" type branching and good, tall attractive foliage, andstems forty inches tall. Having only one-fourth oncocyclus blood, this remarkable new iris should prove more hardy than its parent, William Mohr, which is half oncocyclus. Eight rhizomes only for sale. $15.00.
