| ALLIES. An autumn flowering iris that, with us at least, has not only bloomed in the spring and fall, but throughout the summer as well. Those who already have among fall bloomers the white, purple, and yellow varieties from the Sass Brothers, will welcome this French variety, because it adds a different color note_one of red-brown and fawn, with some of the pigment found in Dauntless, although by no means as red. Rhizomes are usually quite small, but the flowers are of large size, and there just seems to be no end to its blooming possibilities. Each 85c; three for $2.25; ten, $5.00. Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932.
