(SPEC) 'Persica Bolleana'

1901, collector Siehe

'Persica Bolleana' (Walter Siehe-1901-Cicilian Taurus); Scorpiris (Juno) Color Code-Y2; in ; Krelage 1905; Van T. 1909;

Siehe 1901; offered this note;
  • "As a fourth interesting species of tho Persica group, I would call attention to Iris Bolleana, which 1 have named after my friend Dr. C. Bolle, a well-known German botanist. This beautiful Iris has very narrow leaves, and like those of the before mentioned species, they are marked by their white, membraneous edges ; the immature leaves are also limp, and curled about in every direction. The flower is a clear yellow in colour, but on the tip of the innermost perigonial bract is a bright violet blotch. Sometimes this is wanting, and then the whole flower is yellow. Since it is not possible just now to give an accurate and scientific description of these beautiful species that I have discovered, I shall hope in time to make up for it by giving some illustrations in future."
