From Easy Breeze Garden catalog, 1954: SLICK CHICK (Linse 1954) 36". Midseason. Seedling LM-4. This I believe to be the most significant thing ever developed at Easy Breeze, and one that every serious breeder of the Mohr family will want, and should have. After years of work with the Mohr family I have finally developed this slick chick this SNOW WHITE baby of Lady Mohr, and let me emphasize, it is white-not blue or speckled! Best of all, this is not the end of the line as is the case with most of these hybrids, but rather, only the beginning, for this iris has FERTILE POLLEN-as fertile as that of Capitola! I have two fine lots of seedlings from it which should bloom this Season, one from New Snow, the other from Whispers. Again, that's not all, for it has the best branching of any Mohr that I have ever seen, FOUR BRANCHES AND A TERMINAL! No need to start with two strikes on you because of poor branching. The standards are pure white, fully domed with heavy midrib. Falls but slightly flaring, firmly arching downward with greenish midrib plainly visible from beneath. Beard is white, pollen plentiful. Stalks are slender, but fully ample for the medium size blooms, of true Onco appearance. Also sets seeds. It's true significance, of course, is as a breeder, for I firmly believe that this is to be the key that will open the door to countless new and lovely things. Breeding is Lady Mohr ex Snoqualmie. Stocks are fair, but not unlimited, so order early. Modestly priced at Each $20.00.
