From AIS Bulletin #349 April 2008 Introducing MISSOURI MORNING (Niswonger'08), Spuria, Sdlg. Sp 2-99: Missouri Rainbows X Unknown. 38" (97 cm), Mid. I feel Iris growers are still not tuned in to the joy of growing spurias. They are good for arrangements, blooms last longer than most, good accent plants for the perennial border and they extend the season. This one is a good example of a typical spuria with nice form, a color of light blue with a touch of violet and a gold blaze in the center of the falls. It is easy to grow, increases well and doesn't need to be moved as often as tall bearded irises. It's fertile both ways and good for hybridizing. $30.00. Dave Niswonger (Cape Iris).
