From AIS Bulletin #201 April 1971 Introducing JOLLY GOLIATH (Sdlg. 67-26-Goliath). Purple Duet X Sunset Blues. Only one per customer and please order early. This giant has stalks to 44", with heavy-substanced, wonderfully wide blooms. The very clean standards are near-white, while the smooth violet-purple falls have an edge that matches the standards. The attractive ruffling sets off the lovely color contrast. Pollen is abundant and very fertile; untested as to pods. When the flower folds, the falls rise upward, so old flowers are never unsightly. Reblooms here early to mid-October. . $25.00. Avonbank Iris Gardens.
