FAIRY FABLE (Ernst, 1961) Each $25.00. The first introduction originating here at Cooley's Gardens. Larry Ernst, having had access to all of the Iris in our entire collection, including the newest of the Hall seedlings, has produced some very high class things of his own. This one, resulting from Lynn Hall crossed with May Hall combines the best features of both parents. The shade of pink is about midway between these two. The falls possess great width, extra thick substance and are ruffled and waved at the margins. The heavy beard is deep tangerine-red. 36 inches. No. 1-57. Cooley's Iris, 1961.
