From AIS Bulletin #301 April 1996 Introducing ADRIATIC BLUE (Niswonger '96) Sdlg. Sp 3-93: Missouri Rivers X Russian Blue (This pollen parent is questionable. The flower appears to be too good to be a second generation from the species, I. klattii-could be self pollinated.) Spuria, 42" (107 cm), M. Despite its questionable parentage, you will find that this is one of the most beautiful deep blues you have seen with a very contrasty gold in the center of the falls or you could say, gold falls with a deep blue rim. It sets seeds but not as readily as you would expect which may indicate that the parent is indeed Russian Blue. The pollen is fertile. $30.00. Cape Iris.
Hybridizer's comment: This is one of my favorite introductions. (19 Jan 2010).
