| From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1968: HARBINGER (Terrell '62) While the dwarfs and intermediates are still hanging around, this iris will start producing the biggest, broadest deep violet flowers and the most delectable you are likely to see all season. A tall and vigorous herald of spring. Especially notable in the more temperate areas where the earliness becomes an even more enjoyable feature. 5.00
