| From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: Dardanus was the legendary founder of the Trojan race. His mother was Electra--one of the Pleiades. History and mythology are a bit careless in recording such a trifling matter as to whom his father may have been. The ground color is a pearly white. The standards are veined and shaded with bright lilac while the falls have purple veins and a blotch. Early bloom. 18". $1.00.
| From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1955: DARDANUS (1951 Introduction) Each 1.50. A beautiful new Regelio-cyclus hybrid released by the famous Van Tubergen firn, Holland. Standards are bluish violet, falls pearl gray netted brown with a rich brown signal patch. Large flowers and a robust grower.
