| From Tell's catalog, 1958: ENCHANTED VIOLET (Melba Hamblen, Roy, Utah). Midseason-Late. 36 inches. (Helen McGregor x Radiation) x (Palomino). This gorgeous light violet with a flash of pink and orchid in the center of the falls might easily be called a BREAK in breeding. A bright reddish tangerine beard lights up the flower. Wide, ruffled and heavily substanced. Surely a wonderful iris that holds great breeding possibilities for many colors, including blues with tangerine beards. Co-introduced with Mrs. Hamblen. H.C. 1957. $20.00
