From AIS Bulletin #145, April 1957 Introducing IRISTOCRAT ((Pike's Peak Pink x Midwest Gem) x Ruffled Bouquet) X Hall's 42-10). Late. 36 inches. This is the serene, cream, aristocrat so much admired by late-season visitors to our garden the last two years. It is an enamel smooth cream self, brushed light yellow at the hafts, with a bright yellow beard. The individual blooms, with a six inch spread each way, have great poise. IRISTOCRAT is hard to describe because it has that elusive quality-personality. The parentage indicates fine breeding possibilities. Stock limited, one to a customer. $20.00. Rees Iris Garden.
