From AIS Bulletin #289 April 1993 Introducing BORDER RUFFIAN (Ray Lyons) Sdlg. 79-6-2, 28-30", M-L. My attempt to put lace and ruffles on a red iris was a success. Allura, the pod parent, gave the heavy lace and good ruffles. Royal Trumpeter provided the dark red-brown color and fine bronze beards. It outgrew its '89 registration as a BB, which was corrected in '91 to TB. $25.00. Long's Gardens.
