From Fairmount Gardens Catalog, 1948: BARBARA LUDDY (Lapham 1947) M. Mr. Lapham has been breeding for pinks during several years, and in this delectable iris he has achieved most satisfactory results. Named for the well known stage and radio artist Barbara Luddy, the iris is a fitting tribute to this talented and beautiful girl. According to Ridgway, the color is light Safrano pink, and it has just a flush of ivory near the haft and around the very broad tangerine beard. A self with rounded flowers of full form and firm substance with no venations to detract from the purity of color. A truly lovely pink of great refinement of form, and it has enough strength of color to have excellent garden value. A cross of Spindrift X Melitza, it is a very strong grower, and the flowers hold up under most adverse weather conditions. Even placement of the flowers on a strong, three way branching stalk. H.C., A.I.S. 1946. H.M., A.I.S. 1947. 38 in. $20.00.
