| From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing LADY X (Gatty) M, 38". Parentage lost due to a garden mishap, but believed to be from San Leandro X Marquesan Skies. With the touch of mystery behind this feminine-looking iris, the name seemed appropriate! A medium rosy orchid self, the upper half of the falls slightly paler in color. Standards are closed, lightly ruffled and swirled. The semi-flaring rounded falls are lightly ruffled and touched with lace. The beards are tangerine-orange, tipped orchid-white. Three branches plus terminal with double buds. (#BLT-l). $25.00. Keith Keppel.
