We are proud to present this outstanding hybrid raised a number of years ago by Mildred Mize of Bellingham, Washington, on the shores of Puget Sound. Though of unknown parentage, it is presumed to belong to the 40 chromosome group of species Siberians, and is the first American introduction in its color pattern. Airy, flaring, plicata-like flowers dance gracefully on 24" stems. Standards light blue, dotted dark blue; falls ivory, dotted light blue; light blue style arms, light yellow signal. Growth vigorous. Hardy wherever I. chrysographes and I. forrestii are grown. $5.00. Northwest Hybridizers.
