From AIS Bulletin #141, April 1956. Introducing HEATHER ANGEL (Linse '56) 37": Midseason to late. One of the handsome NSCAPS from the Linse gardens, and much darker and later than others being introduced by Linse this year. The fully rounded flowers, 8 inches across, of Onco form are absolute perfection! The color is a smooth Heather Purple (Wilson) with blue tipped beard, and the big rounded flowers with broad fully domed standards have semi-flaring falls 3 inches across. A sturdy plant making good growth and increase, and having strong stalks with two good branches and terminal. Substance is extra heavy. Few iris have the perfection of form and the long lasting qualities of this fine hybrid introduction. Seedling NSCAP-29. New Snow x Capitola. Each $20. Hoffman's Gardens.
