From Schreiners Iris catalog, 1947: FRANK PUGLIESE (Lapham 1947) M. 38". From the hand of the red iris specialist we have this latest release. This iris can briefly be described as a redder, more vibrant Christabel, even more of a self. The standards are so rich they are practically the same shade as the falis. The fiery falls are lustrous and remarkably free of any venation. Christabel is a great iris and this newer development along this same line bears great promise. When viewed with the sun shining through, it does seem as if it were a "house afire" red iris. Free flowering, well branched, good formed blooms. Price, each $15.00.
From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1948: FRANK PUGLIESE (Lapham 1947) M. This iris might be described as a more red and glowing Christabel, and even more of a self. The standards are so deep that they seem the same shade as the lustrous falls. The whole flower is very free from venations and most colorful in the garden. Free flowering, nicely formed blooms, and well branched. 38 in. $10.00
