Awaiting original catalog description
Of the crosses of 1924, three have been named, two from 'Bluet' X cengialti giving 'Hideyo' (a Japanese maiden) and 'Bawani' (an African pygmy), both dainty flowered "table iris," on thin wiry stalks, the latter under favorable conditions blooming again in the fall. 'Hideyo' has the airy grace of a siberian with wavy segments, 'Bawani' being more formal in form, the former a blue purple, the latter a clear medium blue. [Gersdorff, C. (1938). An iris breeder’s records. Bulletin of the American Iris Society, 69(April 1938), 25.]
