| We are still chuckling over the comment on GRAY DAZE. "Grows well, but would never be noticed by a man." How true. Men do like them large and gay as a sailor's wink, and how they go for these colorful iris that have an air of "there's somebody looking at me and it's not another girl." If you know what I mean. Of course there are exceptions. We note that one grower even goes so far as to list iris as "Men's Choice" and" Ladies' Choice." (Editor's Note. Iris Gray Daze was produced by a man breeder. It was picked out of the seedling patch by two men, Messrs. Alford and Williams. The first root was sold to a man, Mr. K. D. Smith. Ho! Hum!) [Mary F. Tharp, “This and That,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 103 (October 1946): 95-96.]
