| From AIS Bulletin #128, January 1953. Introducing OKON-(Kummer)-At last an aril-blooded iris that shows its ancestry in the flower but not in the growing habits. Its blooming season is ideal, about two weeks before the first tall-beardeds. Lovely, abundant, slender foliage in proportion to the 12" slender strong stems. Two terminals, no branching. The flower strongly resembles its onco-regelia pollen parent in its style and in the delicate veining of deeper shade throughout, and the indefinite signal below the beard. Done in two tints of red-violet, it is very deeply ruffled throughout, making it much the most beautiful dwarf I've seen, and the finest iris for table centre imaginable. Mr. Kummer is an experimenter with many plants, but this bit of luck will make him famous among irisarians. (Dark dwarf x unnamed onco-regelia). $7.50.
