| From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1951: CAROLINE DORMON (R. Dormon). An iris certainly worthy of its name. If the unusual is what one likes, here it is. Starting with a heart of pale gold, the colors blend to a deep rose-red at the tip of the sepals and petals. The sepals recurve slightly upward at the tip forming a point. A 6" flower borne on a 36" stem. Has a deeper color in the sun. $3.50.
| From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1955: CAROLINE DORMAN. Each 2.00. A hybrid of much charm and entrancing color. Flaring flowers of light yellow bordered dusky pink. One of the loveliest we have seen. 3 feet.
