From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing ABSTRACTION (Sdlg. 965D). A fascinating, beautifully formed flower from red, white and blue breeding. The fluted conic standards are greenish buff yellow (R.H.S. 160 B.) The ruffled, flaring falls, bordered the color of the standards, have a lavender flush which varies in intensity, depending on the area where grown. A most interesting crisp iris. Midseason 36" HC 1967. Net $25.00. Echo Hill Gardens.
