HEIRLOOM (Grant 1940) M. L. A fascinating iris of great beauty and brilliance. The well arched and closely held standards have a background of medium blue purple flushed with Dahlia carmen. The very broad falls are velvety fuchsia red with a metallic sheen just below the mellow orange beard. A henna brown flush at the haft accentuates the unique blending of color in this most unusual iris. Large flowers of strong smooth substance and good branching. R. 87 1941. 37 in. $5.00. [Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, A Selected List of Tall Bearded Iris. Summer 1942-Spring 1943].
