| From AIS Bulletin #204 January 1972 Introducing Seedling #884, my true lavender reverse bitone that received 45 votes for HC '71, has been registered as PEARL CHIFFON (36". EML.) and will be $35 net. Send your reservation now for a number, as orders will be filled on a first come basis-no money until next June. This well-branched, weather resistant, elusively beautiful TB does have that individual personality, charm and substance that I look for first in judging an iris. Big, well-formed flowers have the "rare and fragile beauty of a woman and the sweetness of a confection," to quote one admirer. Give yourself a treat-order this nationally acclaimed Avis X Rippling Waters beauty now!. Illini Iris.
| One of the really fine seedlings seen at Wichita, Steve Varner's #884, has given notice it intends to be seen in the same way here. A tall growing iris, its smooth tailored flowers of filmy light orchid have an appeal that assures a bright future. [Jones, Bennett C. (1972). Oregon in ’72, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 19.]
