From AIS Bulletin #225 Spring 1977 Introducing KEY LIME. M, 36" (Sdlg. J 22 AOK). Excellent in every way, this novel, ultra-clean lime amoena is just about the perfect iris. The form of the ruffled blossoms is ideal, there is a sweet fragrance, color is truly novel, and the stalks are strictly show-bench perfect. Luckily, it is fertile both ways. It shows no tendency whatever to remont, but its growth is superb. Pure white standards; lime falls are not dark, but quite distinct. ((Crinkled Ivory xx Autumn Sensation) x Grand Baroque) X (58-49-PA xxx Flame Kiss) xx Java Dove) x Grand Baroque. $30.00. Lloyd Zurbrigg.
