FLATTERY (Gatty). M. 36". Cross Country X Eleanor's Pride. For those of you who attended the New York convention, no description of this iris is necessary—just the explanation that it was the seedling labeled Gatty 67-10 at the Knocke garden. For the rest of you, we should say that it is a light chicory blue self, paling toward the center of the falls. The beard is cream, large, and prominent. Standards dome and touch, falls flare, and all parts are wide and nicely ruffled. The large blooms are well-placed on much-branched stalks. Stock limited. HC (21 votes) in 1970. $25.00. (Keith Keppel, 1971). High Commendation 1970; Honorable Mention 1972.
