From AIS Bulletin #137, April 1955. Introducing DOUBLE EAGLE (Samuelson 1954)-The most sensational Iris ever introduced. The first real break in bearded Iris of all time. This amazing Iris throws up unusually heavy, well branched 40" stems carrying huge buds. The first of these open with the conventional three standards and three falls but the later buds toss aside all convention and open to mammoth flowers having from six to 12 standards most beautifully ruffled and waved. Unusually heavy substance hold these lovely standards slightly apart, permitting the startling double effect to be fully apparent even from a distance. Through some lucky chance this new double Iris is a fine coppery chartreuse, a color that all Iris lovers are seeking. It is also among the strongest growers we have seen and thoroughly hardy even in our vigorous northern climate. It is not a freak that will revert to a single type but the first really double Iris to be offered anywhere. $15.00 EACH; 3 FOR $40.00, NET. Lamb Nurseries.
