LATE DATE (Ernst, '67) Each $20.00. Illustrated on the left . . . and comes honestly by the name, since it is at its peak of bloom after almost all others have practically finished. Standards and falls are both white in the central areas and shade gradually to a uniform, bright violet-blue at the outer edges. Beard is white but glows slightly orange within the flower. This is a bi-tone blend and not in any sense a plicata. 36 inches tall, with good placement. [Cooley's Iris, 1967]
