| From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1964: DANCER'S VEIL (Hutchison). The iris that really won the field in the awards competitions in Europe last year. First, it was the winner of the Primo Firenze Award in Florence Italy (the first non-American Iris to win this award). Then to top that it was voted the English Dykes Medal. We were lucky enough to be the first to list this iris in the U.S. last year, but due to a small stock we quickly sold out. However, what was left has increased nicely and we should have several good plants to send out this year, but the supply is LIMITED, so HURRY! One of the most beautiful plicatas we have seen (see our last years description,we said it BEFORE it got all those awards) precisely bordered violet blue, ground clean white. Tightly ruffled falls.
