From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1951: BLUE CHIP. (Reg. 1950). This iris is heralded as the first blue of Abbeville form-an entirely new and much-sought-for coupling of form and color. The 6-inch flowers of hyacinth-blue have the form of Peggy Mac, long acknowledged the most perfect form of the Abbeville type. The 36-inch stalk with lateral branching displays the blooms to perfection. One of the most advanced iris to date. $15.00
