From Avonbank catalog, 1993: JOAN'S PLEASURE (seedling H 22-1-1) TB 26-31" M & RE (early Oct. in MD). The sole introduction for this year is a charmer. The unique coloring, a blended brown with bright lavender falls highlighted with pure white on the haft, will grab you, to use the modern parlance. But the form is even more charming, being heavily ruffled all over, like its "mama", SOAP OPERA. This fall (1992) there were five little clumps of this in Joan and Ken Roberts' garden in Maryland. Each had a bloomstalk well along, the first week of October. I quickly add that this seedling has never rebloomed for me, nor has it ever grown taller than border height, but I do not fertilize heavily. But I have kept a happy eye on it ever since it was found in my seedling garden by Clarence Mahan, during the visit of Region 4 to Radford a few years ago. Here, then, is a beautiful and unique iris for the front of the border, that may give rebloom. It grows well, and it is fertile both ways. I intend to use it more heavily in my crosses, knowing that it can rebloom. Mildly fragrant. Soap Opera X Summer Olympics)
