, 1927). IB. Early bloom. Color Class-Y4M. Toedt 27, Sass 28, Scudder 33, Doub 38, Starker 38, Kat 39. Synonym: Nymphe.
| From Sarah Toedt's Springtime Gardens catalog, 1929: NYMPH — Intermediate. This mellow toned yellow blooms with Rosa Hugonis and is a shade deeper in coloring. Free-flowering and the best multiplier in the garden. As the stock increases and the price lowers, this promises to become a favorite flower with florists for Mother’s Day use. The ladies of the Highland Park Garden Club of Omaha chose Nymph to decorate the tea-table for their Flower Picture Exhibit and Studio Tea held at Aquilla Court. The flower basket of silver held several stems of Nymph Irises just coming into bloom. Blush white and pale pink pyrethrums, a few slender stems of ranunculas with small golden blooms and the foliage of Thalictrum adiantifolium were used in the arrangement. Tall maize tapers tied with creamy yellow tulle placed in silver candlesticks completed the decoration.
