| From AIS Bulletin #157, April 1960. Introducing BLOOMIN' FOOL (#101: Snow Flurry x Chivalry) X Seed Parent of Rich Raiment). This attractive medium chartreuse has been much admired by flower arrangers but is being introduced primarily for breeding purposes because of its prolific blooming habit. A two-year clump bore twelve bloom-stalks with one hundred and thirty-four flowers over an eighteen-day span. It is 40" tall and blooms early to late. Seedlings from it are equally productive and very interesting. Net $5.00. The Iris Farm.
