From Southern California Iris Garden catalog, 1929: PACIFIC (Essig, 1929) (Souv. de Mme. Gaudichau x Lady Foster). This splendid deep blue self has no competitor in the field that combines all of its qualities of clear clean color, substance, carriage, early blooming, vigor and garden effect. It blooms very early and continues over a long period. The flowers are large, 5-1/2 x 6 inches, of firm texture and neat, clean, silky appearance. The color is light bluish violet, intensified somewhat near the middle of the falls. The standards are erect and the falls sufficiently flaring to show off to the very best advantage when viewed from all angles. The stems are slender, stiff, straight and average 3 feet in height. The foliage is bright and clean and during the five years it has been under observation not a single rhizome has rotted. The increase is rather slow and even now the stock is limited. Pacific has been given unstinted praises by many of the leading originators and growers from various parts of the country and we are sure that it will continue to make friends. $10.00.
