PATRICIAN (H. F. Hall 1953) M. There does not seem to be words to adequately portray the beauty of this iris. It is a pure white of flaring form with a decidedly broad overlay of Barium Yell ow on the upper part of the falls each side of the full yellow beard. The standards are highly and firmly domed with smoothly finished texture. The falls are very flaring, and are ornamented by the golden escutcheon toward the center of the bloom. Highly praised by A. I. S. judges, it has been described by one of them as "a rival of Truly Yours." Very heavy substanced flowers with good branching, and hardy vigorous growth. H. C., A. I. S. 1952. H. M., A. I. S. 1953. 36 in. $12.00. [Fairmount catalog, 1955]
PATRICIAN was introduced by H. F. Hall (apparently no kin of Dave Hall) in 1953. Here is poise and poise. Yellow epaulets are on the shoulders with deeper yellow beard, closed standards and very flaring falls. Stalwart poise, serene uniformity, majestic composure-these are the terms you use to describe PATRICIAN. [Carey E. Quinn, “The Modern White Iris,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 166 (July 1962): 11.]
