| From Fairmount Gardens, 1955: IVORY WORK (Wills 1955) M. This iris is well named for it reminds one of the delicacy in detail that we find in a piece of beautiful carved ivory. The standards are cream, charmingly ruffled and firmly held. The arched falls are pale ivory with a narrow, but distinct border of the cream of the standards, broadening a bit on each side of the pale yellow beard. A cross of Star Shine x Amadine, it has inherited firm substance and great beauty of form from its parents. There has heen great lack of light pure creams in our gardens, and Ivory Work supplies this need. Few can resist the appeal of the delectable color of this winsome iris. Firm substance and excellent branching. 36 in. $15.00.
