| CLOVELLY (Tobie 1940) M. L. For many years breeders have been seeking an attractive green iris and now we have it in Covelly. A very flaring grayish white with a strong suffusion of seafoam green (Ridgway) throughout the flower giving the effect of a pale green iris. The standards are very roundly domed with a strong pale green midrib. The falls are flaring of the same color with a deepening of the green on the border of the falls. Light yellow beard. The flowers have fine form and extremely heavy substance well placed on four way branching stalks. One of the most distinctive and fascinating irises that I saw last season, and an absolutely new break in color. R. 88 1940. 40 in. $5.00.
