See below:


From Schreiner’s catalog, 1964: BLUE MOUNTAINS (Schreiner 1964) ML. 38". A rich medium violet-blue, whose most striking feature is, frankly, its very large size, though it also excels in respect to its fine stems, branching, and bud count. At Denver at the National Iris Show, this iris attracted much attention. Like blue mountains looming up on the horizon, massive yet serene, this iris looms up in the garden as a distinctively impressive mass of blue-toned color--hence the name. A preeminent garden iris. Very clean cut, broadly full in all its parts. No. P 658-S (First Violet X Blue Linen). $25.00.
