■(MDB) 'Sulina'

2017, Schreiner

'Sulina' (Schreiner, R. 1942) MDB, 4" (10 cm), Midseason bloom. Royal blue self, darker blue spot on falls; beard same. Parentage unknown. 'I. pumila' seed from Cluj Botanic Garden, Romania. Retroactively registered by AIS 2017. Schreiner 1942.

See below:



From the Introductory 1942 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Lovely royal blue with beard the same color. These two varieties (along with Carpathia) are selected from hundreds of seedlings raised from seed, collected and sent to us from Rumania.
From the 1955 Lloyd Austin Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens Catalog: A true miniature; one of the 4 known forms of Pumila; sought by every breeder of Dwarfs. A midget, only 4" high. A deep violet blue self with a blackish violet area like a black signal around lilac-blue beard. Even the pollen is blue. It is believed all blue Dwarfs stemmed from Sulina or some other similar form. So this is a collector's item for any dwarf hybridizer.
