From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: SULTAN'S FAVORITE (Austin '63) VE-28". Here, indeed, is one of the most fantastically decorated of all Oncobreds, or in fact, of all Iris. Reminiscent of such attention getters as Joppa Parrot, Bali Agha and its pollen parent Chenik Aga, but often more highly decorated than any of these. Globular standards are pinkish lilac, falls golden buff, flushed crimson. Buds & all 6 petals very heavily splashed dark wine red, giving an exotic appearance. Like the C. White Oncobreds, which it resembles, this, too, is highly fertile, with abundant pollen. Farewell X Chenik Aga. Regularly $15; on $20 order $1O.5O; on $25 order $8.2S.
