| From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1948: OLYMPIAN (G. Douglas 1948) M. Imposing and quite different, this handsome iris is most resplendent in the garden. It is a bi-tone with perfectly domed standards of buff lightly blended with rose. The flaring and very broad falls are rosy brown with a deeper velvety flush of rose in the center. The flowers are very large of heavy thick substance, and have great weather resistance. The exceptionally fine branching allows perfect placement of the 10 or more blooms on the strong tall stalk that does not blow down with heavy winds. Floriferous and rapid of increase with strong clean foliage. 42 in. $20.00.
