From AIS Bulletin #281 April 1991 Introducing SAILOR'S FANCY-SIBERIAN. Schafer/Sacks (Seedling No. S86-13-1), 33", M. With its mid-blue falls and light blue standards we hope this iris will be the beginning of a line of blue amoenas. However its outstanding form is what attracts us most. Wide, flaring, and softly ruffled, the falls and standards float effortlessly like a dream of the sea. (Exhibition Certificate 1988). Springs Brook X Butter and Sugar. $30.00. Joe Pye Weed's Garden.
