From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1957: GRACE B (Kerr '57) Golden Ruffles X (sdlg. 146: (Orloff X Prince of Orange) X Ola Kala ). Mr. Kerr dedicates this fine iris to his wonderful wife and it is named for her. If you have been looking for an iris that will outshine all others in color and brilliance, don't look any further, this is it. A self of deep bright orange with red splashes over the falls! The blossoms are big and full and wide and the stem sturdy and very well branched, 36" tall. And to add to the color, as if anything needed adding to it, the beard is also orange! You take it from there. $15.00
