From Aitken’s Salmon Creek Garden, 2013: NEW RULES (S. Markham '13) TB, 38" (97 cm), M. This is a tall, floriferous cream-yellow with bright yellow hafts, throat and style arms, and shiny orange beards that breaks a few rules and creates a few new ones. The nicely ruffled flowers are on the smaller side for a tall iris, but there are a great many of them, carried well above the foliage on beautifully branched stems for a bouquet effect. A clump of this iris in full bloom makes a statement from across the yard! New England born and bred, this is a hardy, strong plant in all climates,very floriferous, and a fast increaser. Sdlg. #02-09G: Body and Soul X 98-26A: (94-1A2: (Ace of Diamonds sib x Florence Fisher) X Pink Presence) - photo:front cover - $50.00.
