From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1945: FAIR ENOUGH (C. G. White) Is fair enough indeed! It could hardly be excelled as a medium toned blue iris. The broad, crisp, sparkling petals rest on perfectly branched stems 48 inches tall. It has a long blooming season, being one of the earliest of the large flowered varieties to bloom and it continues to bloom past all believing. It is one of the bluest toned irises, rating with Shining Waters and Early Mass. $1.00; 3 For $2.50.
Fair Enough is a very early iris with a long season of bloom. This is a Purissima seedling by the species, Susiana, tall, well-branched, a large self of clear bright blue with flaring falls, a paler grayed blue around the edges. [Lila McCombs, “A Critical Evaluation of Older Irises”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 57.]
