From Burseen’s The Lab catalog, 2014: COW PATTY, 36", M-L. $75.00. This turkey was a hit at the 2013 AIS Convention. It seems iris folks just cannot get enough of brown irises. Indeed, the registrar/reorder for the AIS discovered this thing as he wallowed around in the mud at this event (those who attended the convention can attest to this) making him feel as if he were in the middle of one big cow patty. Hence, the name was proffered bY the registrar. Even though the conditions were quite dreary this thing stood out because of all the blooms on all the stalks, and, because of the huge gold beards that glowed like beacons in the rain. Another cultivar that was a hit at this convention was a 2013 introduction called Maggie Beth. Guess what! It is a brown iris too infused gold with big gold beards also, and, it is the pollen parent of this pile of s---. Seedling 10-1503A: Brilliant Idea X Maggie Beth.
