From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1951: ROSES AND WINE. (Reg. 1948). A sister seedling of Caroginia, similar, but with an entirely different personality. Whereas Caroginia is more stately and tailored, Roses and Wine is a bit more merry. The sepals of the 5½-inch flowers have an ochraceous salmon ground closely and heavily veined bordeaux, shading out to dahlia purple at the edge. At the tip it pinchess lightly-just enough to add a mark of individuality. The fluted petals are jasper pink with an occasional stitch of dahlia carmine for good measure. 30 inches. Mid-season. $7.50.
