From AIS Bulletin #206 July 1972 Introducing ANGEL'S ART 67-43-3. TB. 37". Very late. White ground plic with blue violet (light campanula) marking on both standards and falls. Dark blue styles. White beard. Excellent branching and substance. Bud count 7 to 11. Opens two to five flowers; long season of bloom. Good ruffling and poise. Standards closed. 17 HC votes 1971. Rococo X sib to Tea Apron. $20.00. John Humphrey.
For a late blooming plic, John Humphrey's ANGEL'S ART fills the bill. He hasn't decided if he will introduce the HC-winning beauty or not. It has many fine points as a result of its parents Rococo and a sib to Tea Apron. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 13.]
