From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing BLUE WILSON (1972) 52". This is a hybrid plant from I. Wilsonii and other 40 chromosome Siberian species. It is tall and stays standing while floating a cloud of soft blue above its excellent foliage. This plant has all of the grace and charm that one can hope for in a garden subject. Its flowers are the bluest blue of any grown by Professor McGarvey. Requires moist but not wet soil. $35.00 net. Old Brook Gardens.
