(TB) 'Dolorosa'

1941, Wareham

'Dolorosa' (John Wareham, R. 1941) TB. Midseason/late bloom. Color Class B7M. From seedlings from I. trojana x 'Dominion'.

DOLOROSA is of crinkled appearance throughout and could easily be mistaken for a WILLIAM MOHR seedling. However, it contains no onocyclus blood. It is a pure mauve self, a bit lighter around the tip of the pale yellow beard, with nearly solid hafts of cinnamon and pinkish buff. It has fine veining of the same shade over the ground color that produces the crinkly appearance as in WILLIAM MOHR. (Gersdorff, 1945, p. 49).
