From Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, Introductions for 1945. BLUE CROWN (Washington 1945) M. A pale blue and white reverse bicolor with a frosty sheen enveloping the whole flower. The pale blue standards are roundly domed, strong and firm. The semi-flaring falls are pure white with slight ruffling at the edge. The flowers are beautifully formed and the delicate contrast of standards and falls is most effective. Heavy substanced flowers, good branching. A fascinating, fragrant iris. 36 in. $10.00. [Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, ]
