From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing APRIL ELEGANCE (Clara B. Rees) TB, 40". Mid-season. (Snow Flurry x Sable Night). Elegant, waved blossoms, measuring 6-1/2 inches overall. Light pansy-violet by the chart, but a blending of tones which appear rosy-lavender to the eye. Red beard. Three branches and terminal, but branching is unusual. Laterals are short and slightly curved, so that each blossom stands out as distinct and separate from every other. Husky growth and magnificent in a clump. Net $25.00./ Rees Iris Garden.
