From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: ALLEGRIA VE-15". Very much like the wonderful Onco-like Susiana Hybrid pictured in my '61 catalog. But this is essentially an Oncogelia, the only one we can grow without slightest difficulty along with our summer-irrigated Bearded Iris. You can handle it this way, or as an Aril, with no summer water. Reddest of Oncogelias, very round & Onco-like. Visitors take it for a true Onco. A beauty. Foliage dies like an Onco in fall. 32 chromosomes. (Artemis (Oncogelia) X Ricardi (Bearded)). Regularly $3.50; on $15 order 2 for $2.4S; on $25 order 3 for $1.9S.
