. Marx 1953.
| From Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: TEMPLE MAIDEN (Marx 1953) Each $2.50 The rare delicate shades, a prime feature of Japanese Iris, manifest refinement and tranquility not visible in any other type of Iris. We selected this seedling for its beautiful lavender tone with just the faintest suggestion of orchid pink. An absolute self even to the upright lavender styles. Large 10 inch flowers of artistic mold and sleek texture. Branched 40 inch stems. Midseason.
