GENTILITY (Tompkins 1968) M.VL. 40 in. (South Pacific x Whole Cloth) x (Whole Cloth x South Pacific). There seems to be a great many of this type of Amoena nowadays but this one is so good that we just couldn't pass it by. It is a huge, even a mammoth flower, but it is so perfect in its styling and in its proportions and is carried on such strong, tall, widely branched stalks that it still remains a truly graceful Iris. Larger even than South Pacific, it has enormous rounded petals with well domed stands and flaring falls. The standards are pure Chalk White with a velvet like finish and the falls are a vivid shade of Chalk Blue, velvety and clean with no veining. A white, yellow tipped beard adds to its bright cleanness and a graceful fluting adds still another touch of genteel charm to its overall beauty. It is hardy and has broad foliage and huge rhizomes.No. 64-58D. Net $25.00. [Fleur de Lis catalog, 1965].
