This iris is of a rare shade of blue, hyacinth blue, deeper than the general run of blues, yet not purple. Blooms at midseason along with Mary Ella, and makes an ideal companion for it. The 38" stalks are nicely branched. The well-spaced blooms are often open three at a time per stalk. The broad floral parts are lightly waved. Blue-tipped beard. Viable pollen. Parentage: (Lake George x Brunhilde) x (Ebony Queen). $20.00. Edwin Rundlett.
