■(JI) 'Stippled Ripples'
( Walter Marx
, R. 1959) JI, 40" (102 cm), Late. White, with red border. 'Akafukurin'
. Delayed registration. Marx 1955.
| From Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: STIPPLED RIPPLES $7.50 A dainty frilly affair with lots of personality. Though not large the saucy flare and extremely frilled edge distinguish the flower from all others. Color, much like its parent, Kuruma-dome, is white with the narrowest red border. We are very fond of this enchanting iris and believe it will win great popularity. Blooms rather late in the season on 3 to 3½ foot stems.
