From Carl Salbach catalog, 1928: MORERA (Mohr-Mitchell) 1928. (Korolkowi X Ib-macrantha.) A very distinct new variety which combines the familiar bearded iris Macrantha with the Regelia species Korolkowi and the oncocyc1us species Iberica. The name given it, Morera, means mulberry in Spanish and quite accurately gives the unusual color of this very different and beautiful flower. The slender 32 inch stems are branched, and carry many flowers, so that the season is long. While hardy as a weed in California, we cannot advise any but the adventurous gardener where the winters are cold and wet to try it unless he hasfound that he can grow Carmelo and Bellorio or Sir Michael Foster's pogocyc1us varieties such as Nazarine and Dilkush. $3.00 each.
