From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing HALLOWEEN PARTY (Jim Gibson 1970) M and Re. This is a real knockout, and the fact that it blooms again in October is strictly a bonus, as with FALL FORMAL. This is quite opposite, in that it has a garish, riotous personality. The tightly swirled and ruffled S. are golden orange, close to Chinese yellow (60611), subtly blended with red, especially near the edges. The white falls have some yellow at the super-heavily ruffled edges. There is a bold stroke of rhodamine purple at the center, and this color is heavily applied around the border, where, however, it is blended with the yellow, making it seem cinnamon colored. The ruffling is outstanding. Strong, sweet licorice flavor. Rebloom mid-October. (Sdlg. 44-4C). $35.00. Avonbank Gardens.
Reported Rebloom in: CA, TX, VA USDA Zone 6,7 [The 2012 Cumulative Checklist of Reblooming Iris, p. 91]
