Awaiting original catalog description
From Cooley's catalog, 1932: ANDANTE. The Longfield Iris Farm introduced Andante in 1930 as a greatly improved 'Germaine Perthuis'. It bloomed for us this last season and was one of the surprises of our garden. The great, black buds unfolded into flowers of perfect form and wondrous beauty. General effect is darkest purple, with very bright orange beard. One of the excellent features is the almost total absence of veining. Each $4.00; three for $10.50.
