From AIS Bulletin #317 April 2000 Introducing AVALON BECKONS (R. Nichols) TB & SA 36" M-L Growers have been inquiring for three years as to the availability of this beautiful new space age iris. Plentiful stock of this exciting and beautiful iris now allows us to offer it to you. Beautifully ruffled large flowers have pinkish lavender standards with broad rose pink falls. Full tangerine beards have consistent purple ends with turn up in large horns. A touch of lace adds special charm to the flowers. Well branched stalks have 9 or more flowers. This iris is a very good grower and will not disappoint you. Fertile both ways. (Sweet Musette X Pagan Pink). $45.00. Hooker Nichols.
