LEGIONNAIRE (Watkins-Graves 1953) M. An iris bred by Mr. Edward Watkins during his many years of association with the late Dr. Graves. An exquisite flower of palest blue with a deeper blue flush toward the center and hafts of the bloom. The crisp ruffling of the standards and falls gives an airy grace that is most delightful, and an added charm is the superb branching and long season of bloom. H.C., A.I.S., 1952. 44 in. $9.00. Fairmount catalog, 1955.
