From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing ROYAL SWAN (Bonnie Dunbar), TB. 40". (Mary McClellan X Black Swan). There are a lot of "blacks" but this one jumps out at you. Perhaps some of its distinction comes from the aril blood on the pod parent side. The standards are a full dark violet. The falls are rich black-purple with a narrow edge of lighter violet. The beard is greenish brown, etched with a small area of blue-white. Tall and stately with good branching and nice ruffling. $25.00. Riverdale Iris Gardens.
