From AIS Bulletin #198 July 1970 Introducing MISTY. Lynn Markham. $25.00. A magnificent light lavender iris featuring near-perfect form, Misty has full, round petals beautifully ruffled and pleated, displayed on fine show stalks with perfect placement of 3 or 4 branches and terminal. The stalks average 34 to 36 inches and hold very well in our erratic New England weather. Substance of the flowers is excellent. In addition to its beauty, Misty has the unusual tendency to "crop" its flowers, sending up a few brand new stalks as the first stalks are finishing, and thus blooming from midseason to very late on established plants. We held back this introduction for some time, fearing that its rebloom tendencies would cause it to bloom out, but such is not the case, for it is a vigorous plant, quite capable of handling such heavy bloom. It is also fertile both ways and produces excellent seedlings. From Rippling Waters X Whole Cloth. HC 1969. The Markham Garden.
