From AIS Bulletin #221 April 1976 Introducing IRENE NELSON (1976) Sdlg. 68-41-1. ((((Frances Kent x Mary Randall) x Frost & Flame) x Beattie 59 41) x Blue Dove X (((Frances Kent x Mary Randall) x Frost & Flame) x Blue Dove. Named for my good friend Mrs. J. Arthur Nelson, who admired it when she saw it as a seedling in the garden during the Convention here in 1972. This is an iris of elegant form and color. Ruffled standards are bold full violet. The broad, nearly horizontal, beautifully ruffled falls open light violet, quickly fading to near white, witha half-inch border of full violet. The beard is carrot red. Strong wellbranched stalks carry seven to nine buds. The plant is vigorous and a good increaser. Of beautiful color and form, it will become the focal point in any planting. A waiting list exists-order early. HC 1974. 34". $25.00. Bennett Jones.
