■(JI) 'Ocean Mist'

1953, Marx

'Ocean Mist' (Walter Marx, R. 1952) JI (double), 36" (91 cm), Midseason bloom. Light and medium blue, white center. 'Catherine Parry' X 'Hisakata'. Marx 1953.

See below:


From Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: OCEAN MIST (Marx 1953) Each $4.00. A most refreshing blue iris that we like better each year. Soft sky blue except for the margins which are shaded deeper hues of violet blue. Prominent white centers and spreading white styles tipped blue add charm and interest to this queenly flower. Good blue Japanese Iris are uncommon and we feel that Ocean Mist will prove to be a notable addition to the best collections for years to come. Large double 8 inch flowers on 3 foot stems. Midseason.
From Tempo Two AU catalog, 1974: OCEAN MIST (Marx USA) Double Mid-Season. Heavy blooming light blue lavender self with a white area around mustard signals. Style arms are white. 6"-7" blooms. Tall 36". $1.50.
