From AIS Bulletin #268 January 1988 Introducing FIRST SERGEANT-Sdlg. LD-07. OH, 12" (30 cm), EM. S. violet-blue, touching. F. greenish white ground showing through coarse black veining. There is a wide bright pink sergeant's stripe on the F. between the maroon beards and the dark red signal, which covers most of the falls. This flower won Best Seedling at the El Paso Iris Society iris show in 1987. The parentage is pure onco, but it has two blooms to the stem, which I've been told is not true with onco irises. I also took a bloom to the Phoenix Convention, and no one could tell me what happened. I. camillae X I. paradoxa. A very good grower here. $20.00. Pleasure Iris Gardens.
