| GYPSY LULLABY (O. Brown '61). "Definitely a unique, different variety of merit, with butterscotch-flushed-violet standards atop falls of medium red-violet. Ultra wide fonn with a complete horizontal flare. A truly gypsy-like concoction of refinement. Branching is a bit scarce most seasons and growth varies with the effects of winter seasons, but dependable more than not. A popular priced variety that will be the envy of all neighbors." Roger R. Nelson (Wayne, Nebraska), “An Extra Dimension”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 196, (January 1970): 9.
