From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1958: MERRY LYNN (Henry Till, Jr., St. Louis, Mo.).Early-Midseason-Late. 38-42 inches. (White Leather x Sdlg.) x (Snow Goddess). Very smooth self of Mignon (M & P 43-F-7) or near lobelia violet. Heavy beard of cream deepening too range-yellow in throat. The extra heavy stalks carry the large, waved flowers to perfection. Vigorous foliage and healthy rhizomes. Ormohr being the parent of White Leather gives thi siris a dash of adventure for hybridizing. Pods easily and has most potent pollen even on very difficult hybrids. A lovely self-colored flower that should look especially well in the show room. Mr. Till's first introduction. We have propagated a fair stock. $20.00
