From AIS Bulletin #257 April 1985 Introducing DIME SPOT-TB, 34", Early & RE in TX. This ruffled and fluted brilliant yellow with gold beards and luminescent fall spot will impress you with its blooming ability. It first bloomed in April '82 and rebloomed that fall in November. In 1983 it bloomed in February, March and April and rebloomed in November and December. In 1984 it bloomed in April and November. Then on December 29, it rebloomed perfectly after earlier frosts and temperatures down to 27°. Perfection in form in a yellow rebloomer, this iris also has a pleasing citrus fragrance. (Sunset Snows x Second Look) X Soft Halo. Worth more but the price is $30.00. Walter Moores.
