From AIS Bulletin #209 April 1973 Introducing PORTA VILLA. '73. ML. 43". $25.00. The perfectly formed 6" X 7" ruffled flowers on 43" well-branched stalks demand attention. Especially, since the beet rose purple markings blend on a salmon colored ground is unique. This should really be termed a fancy rather than a plicatao The standards are veined beet rose purple on salmon. The same color but slightly darker is etched quite evenly on the falls. Beard is in nasturtium orange. Truly an excellent and vigorous iris. #6-6N. Gibson's Iris Gardens.
