Bright flowers that carry well are always welcome in the garden, and this stunning new Siberian has great life and beauty in its unusual combination of color. The standards are lilac purple (No.031), erect and firm, the rounded falls are the same color as the standards with a sea blue area (No. 043) in the heart of the flower. Full firm substanced flowers and excellent branching. A very brilliant iris that is a valuable addition to the Siberian group. H.M., A.I.S. 1953. 38 in. $3.00
