Hybridizer Wentworth Caldwell

Nashville, Tennessee, USA

Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, Summer 1942-Spring 1943.

Mr. Wentworth Caldwell of Nashville, Tenn. is one of the younger generation of iris enthusiasts for which that city is justly famous. He is a delightful southern gentleman and is all too modest about his hobby of breeding iris. I have watched his seedlings with great interest for several years, and last season chose his lovely iris 'Tishomingo' as being most worthy of introduction. It is a large clear light Wistaria blue self of very flaring form and the strongest smooth substance I have ever seen in an iris bloom.


Tall Bearded: 'Chavanon', 'Cotillion', 'Sequatchie', 'St. Regis', 'Summertime', 'Tishomingo'.
