From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: RHYTHM (Ballard '54) M to ML-24". See in color. A phenomenal break in Iris form; the first flat Iris with six bearded falls. A whimslcal freak of nature, entirely without the usual three standards characterizing normal Iris. A novel item for arrangement fans. While not highly fertile, some seedlings have been produced, thus it offers a challenge to adventurous breeders eager to get this distinctive form in bright new colors. Be the first to accomplish this. 24 chromosomes. ((Alcazar x Archeveque) X Candelabra). Regularly $2.50; on $10 order $1.50; 3 for $3.40.
