From AIS Bulletin #237 April 1980 Introducing MOONDREAMER (Walt Luihn 'SO). #77-29. TH, 37", M-L. (Miss Illini x Solano) X Ormolu. Again we have 'mixed up' several top-notch yellow irises with pink in their backgrounds and have come up with what we feel is an exciting offspring. It is a wide and extremely thick-substanced self of a luscious shade of apricot and has inherited many of the good qualities of its awardwinning forebears. Upon very close inspection you will find the domed standards are perhaps a slight shade lighter than the wide and semi-fluted falls, but the overall effect is a rich apricot self. The only deviation in color is in the rich, thick, peachy-apricot beard. We have been particularly fond of this iris with lots of personality since its maiden bloom. Our garden visitors seem to agree, and we hope you will, too. $25.00. Luihn's Iris Garden.
