From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing COUNTRY MUSIC (D.C. Nearpass '70). L, 34". Sdlg. 4-66-17 (Enchanted Violet x Emma Cook) X Pretty Carol. Unique in both color and form of the flower. The standards are orient pink and the falls plum purple (RHS 84D) with a tangerine beard. The round falls are waved and flare horizontally. You will never mistake Country Music for any other iris flower seen anywhere, anytime, anyplace. A strong plant but slow increaser. A great new novelty. HC 1968. $25.00. Palette Gardens.
