| From AIS Bulletin #233 Spring 1979 Introducing CHIPPENDALE (Donald Denney) TB, VL, 36". $25.00. The ruffling and heavy substance of this brown toned iris are reminiscent of the intricate carving that distinguish fine Chippendale furniture. This colorful beauty begins its bloom very late and has the heavy substance to withstand heat. Its basic color is terra cotta, as clay flower pots, brightened by a gold infusion at the hafts and a delicate violet accent below Indian yellow beards. The 8-9 flowers are in balanced proportion on 36" bloomstalks, 3 branches plus terminal. The blossoms are not overly large, but are very fragrant. This is ideal for use in arrangements and mixed bouquets. Sdlg. D 72-136-1: Gala Madrid X Gaulter 68-593: (Laurie x San Leandro). Cottage Gardens.
