From AIS Bulletin #305 April 1997 Introducing MISSOURI MOONLIGHT (Niswonger'97) Sp 4-94: Sp 8-88:((Sp 6-80: Far Out x Redwood Supreme) x Unknown)) X Firemist. Spuria, 4011 (102 cm), M. This light yellow is from "pink" breeding. As an aside, there are not pink spurias but my friends know that I am obsessed with breeding a pink spuria. It was the form that attracted me to this iris. It is somewhat different than most spurias being wide and flat. Fertile. $30.00. Cape Iris.
