BELLE OF DIXIE (C. Carpenter 1942) M. A rich dark blend with boldly flaring flowers and very heavy substance. According to Ridgway, the highly domed standards are Sayal brown, lightly flushed with Lobelia violet, strong midrib, and slightly ruffled at the edge. The lower portion of the firm flaring falls and around the beard is rich Lobelia violet, the upper part is cinnamon-brown which extends way down into the throat. Orange yellow beard. This iris attracted a great deal of attention in the Douglas garden at Nashville at the time of the A. I. S. meeting last year. A dark iridescent blend that reminds one of the colors seen in the opalescent plumage of a pigeon. Three branches and terminal on sturdy stalks. 40 in. $10.00. [Fairmount Gardens Catalog. Summer 1942, Spring 1943, Lowell, Massachusetts].
