From AIS Bulletin #189 April 1968 Introducing BLUE BURN (McGarvey '68). 32". Burn is a Scottish word meaning stream or river and the light blue flowers of this lovely plant have white highlights which suggest blue water turning white in its rush over highland rapids. It is early blooming along with many tall bearded irises. A sister seedling to EGO, entirely different in form and coloring, it is a worthy companion plant to the previous McGarvey introductions. Sdlg. 63-4-2 (WHITE SWIRL X McG-B-Lt-b-sty). Net $30.00. Old Brook Gardens.
