From Adamgrove catalog,1997: ALONE AT LAST (Tankesley-Clarke, 97). I hadn't seen late until I'd seen this flower. We've grown literally thousands of different talls, and none have been as late as this one. It is not uncommon for this vibrant light yellow, billowing with ruffles, to have unopened buds when the early Japanese irises start. Yet, it withstands the heat that often comes that time of year, thanks in part to unusually heavy substance. So, let's be frank--you'll not likely get queen of the bearded show with this one. Oh, the stalks are plenty good enough, better than most, actually. But by show time this queen won't even be out of bed yet! 602A: [Pleated Gown X Big Dipper]. $35.00
