From AIS Bulletin #193 April 1969 Introducing ID McGarvey '69). 20". Velvety black Siberian from pure chrysographes breeding. This is an exciting plant which is true to species in its fonn. There are fine threads of gold on the falls but these can only be detected by close observation. With the introduction of ID the triumvirate of "psychological" irises named for Sigmund Freud's personality constructs is complete. ID has grown well in the cold climate of Oswego, and equally well at the Presby Garden in northern New Jersey, but it has not done well in California. This is an iris for the expert and even though it is still in short supply, its introductory price is low for that reason. (Mid Siberian bloom season) Net $12.00. Old Brook Gardens.
