From AIS Bulletin #149, April 1958. Co-introducing with Tell's Iris Garden SAINT JUDE-(J. Gatty '58) ML Hgt. 37" $20.00. (Sky Song x Granny Sherman). A serene and exquisite light blue. The smooth and heavy-substanced blossoms are produced in abundance atop sturdy and well-branched stalks. The standards are well domed and firmly held while the wide semi-flaring falls of smooth coloring are lightly ruffled. A most prolific variety and a worthy addition to the light blue' class. Joseph Gatty.
From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1958: SAINT JUDE (Joseph Gatty, Jersey City, N. J.). Midseason-Late. 36 inches. (Sky Song) x (Granny Sherman: ((Missouri x Great Lakes) x Gloriole)). Since I am the "grandfather" of this lovely light blue, Mr. Gatty has let me cointroduce his first introduction and winner of an H.C. 1957. Classically tailored, smoothly finished with just enough ruffling in the falls to give it charm. A fine addition to this color class and one that does not fade but holds its color to the last. Prolific of bloom and healthy. $20.00
