| From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1968: TIME AND TIDE (Fred Maddocks '68) JAPANESE IRIS Single. 36" Parentage unknown. Many of the named varieties of Japanese Iris in Japan and some of those imported to this country go back a hundred years or more to their origins and are still great iris and very popular. This is how we feel about the iris we are introducing here: neither time nor tide will efface the beauty and enduring qualities of this great iris. The form is transcendent in its perfection. The small standards and style arms form a uniform cup in the center of the flower and both are white with a narrow edge of violet. The falls arch outward and down at the tip and are wider than their length, thus overlapping completely at the haft with fluted ripples all around the edges. Violet, in a wide band, surrounds the spotless white ground of the central area and it is lightly feathered where the colors meet. Stem and plant are exemplary. $20.00
