From Fairmount Gardens, 1955: SEATHWAITE (Randall 1955) M. L. Form, substance, color and branching are the special attributes of this clear blue iris. A sister seedling of Derwentwater, it is a large flowered ruffled light blue, rather darker and better branched than Helen McGregor. The color is not far from Cahokia, but it is later flowering, has much better branching and sturdy growth with no sign of tenderness that we sometimes find in Cahokia. The standards are closely held by the strong mid-ribs. The falls are wide and semi-flaring with a ruffled contour. Seathwaite flowers in great profusion and stands up in strong wind without any staking. This is the formal introduction in the U. S. It won the English Dykes Medal in 1952. 38 in. $12.50
