From Sindt Irises catalog, 1983: FAR AND WEE. Miniature Dwarf Bearded (David Sindt 1983) Soft lavender standards combine with warmer orchid falls bursting with golden yellow at the hafts and accented with cream beards. This diminutive and proportionate iris is the epitome of early spring -persistent though not showy, a real delight at close range. The nemeis from the e.e.cummings poem that for me is a classic evocation of spring and is reproduced on the inside front cover. I have loved this poem since I was in high school; the charms of FAR AND WEE may well be equally enduring. 13 cm tall. Seedling 383. ((Moon Shadows x Dark Spark) X White Mite). $12.00
