From AIS Bulletin #165, April 1962. Introducing LITTLE LYNN (Fay 49-39 X Mary Randall), 18", E-M. From a small Fay tetraploid seedling and Mary Randall comes this charming little pink border iris with tangerine beard. It has small pleasingly formed flowers with slightly open standards. There are three branches on a straight, sturdy stalk. We believe that Little Lynn may be a step towards a tetra table iris, and we already have a 16" slender-stemmed table iris from this breeding. Little Lynn produces only 3-8 seeds per pod-pods readily only with other tetraploids. $10. Sheaff Garden.
