From AIS Bulletin #349 April 2008 Introducing CONCERTO FOR LLOYD (Joan Roberts '08) 37" M. Sdlg. No. 1936-25: (1633-1: (Clarence x Cee Cee) X Double Dribble). The name was graciously given to me by Clarence Mahan but the introduction of this iris was inspired by Lloyd Zurbrigg. We were wandering around my seedling bed and he saw this iris from a few rows away. He said "Oh Joan, look at this one - it's better than Clarence!" I had originally hoped to name it Lloyd Zurbrigg but alas, it did not rebloom - at least not for me. Looking at the parentage, it might do so in warmer climates. Light blue stands, darker near the top. Wide flaring lightly ruffled falls are medium blue with a prominent white blaze that is highlighted by deep blue lines around the sides of the beard (which undoubtedly came from Double Dribble). Yellow-orange beards are light blue at the ends. Excellent branching with 8-10 buds. $50.00. Friendship Gardens.
