'New Hope' (Fred DeForest, R. 1947) TB. Late midseason bloom. Color Class-W2M. (((('Alta California' x 'Sacramento') x ('Alta California' x 'Sacramento')) x ('Tiffany'): seedling# P42) x ('Blue Shimmer').

See below:


From Iris Test Garden Catalog, 1955: NEW HOPE. (DeForest, 1950). We believe this plicata will become very popular due to its clear markings and crisp ruffled petals. The ground color is white with both standards and falls heavily bordered with violet blue. Heavy substanced flowers beautifully poised on tall, wellbranched stalks. A superior iris in every way. 40 inches. H.M., A.I.S., 1951. $3.00.
