From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: This one stumped the Reference Librarians at two big Libraries. Teucer was the first king of Troy and Teucria means Trojan-that's as far as we got. The flower is very like Dardanus and since it has the same breeding it is more than likely a sister seedling. The standards are more on the pink tone however. One that is quite reliable-generally! Early bloom. 18". 75¢.
