Moongate (El Dorado Gardens). Seen in Dr. Loomis’ garden[1963], this iris evoked much comment. The flowers are very wide, and ruffled, and are pure white lightly marked with light blue on the haft area only. The beard is pale yellow, tipped blue. The branching is good. The falls flare gracefully and the standards are arched and closed. A beauty. AISB 170:July1963'>AIS Bulletin No. 170, July, 1963:
