From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1948: FAIRY LIGHT (Thorup) (Shelford Giant x yellow spuria) Here is a delightful Spuria. Standards and styles white, slightly flushed lemon-chrome color in base of standards. Falls flaring and ruffled; color lemon-chrome (Ridgeway) with one eighth inch margin of clean pure white. It is a new departure in coloring, and altogether enticing. Here the spurias bloom after the tall bearded iris are gone. They make good garden subjects, grand cut flowers and ideal corsages. Their tough rhizomes and roots are splendid for holding banks against erosion. Barnyard manure is their best fertilizer. Rhizomes of Fairy Light will be shipped in September. $10.00.
