From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1968: MEDIA LUZ (Ben R. Hager '68) SPURIA IRIS 50" (Dutch Defiance X Wadi Zem Zem. From the Spanish: the "half light" or twilight. Pronounced: May'-dee-ah Laos. Wadi can still produce good seedlings. We have had this one around for quite a while, not knowing if the very pastel tones would be popular, but with the new stronger tones coming along so fast, perhaps a return to some pretty pastels will be welcome. This iris is done in tones of pale pastel lavender and cream. The standards are misty lavender lightly veined. The wide, very rounded and fluted falls are pale greyed lavender over cream that deepens to light yellow at the throat. Delicate veins etch a pattern from the throat to the edges of the petals. Vigorous plant with wide green foliage and strong stems with two bud placements and terminal. $7.50
