From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1962: JACKANAPE (Marx 1961) Each 3.00. We have grown literally thousands of different Dwarf Iris but never have we seen this color in another. Ever since its maiden bloom this seedling has been referred to in the test garden as "Purple Smoke." It is a smooth, smoky purple self with no veining. Full petaled flowers of rounded form. Prolific bloom on 8-inch stems. Early.
