| From AIS Bulletin #269 April 1988 Introducing SHELLY ELIZABETH (Katherine Tutin 1988) #T 82-17, 28", E-M. From a new hybridizer comes this tall bearded iris in a glowing new color combination. The bright and luminous yellow standards dome gracefully over the dark wine-red falls which are edged a shade of yellow to match the standard color. Bright fuzzy gold beards enhance the flower on very flared falls. Flowers are ruffled and lightly fluted. It has a pronounced sweet fragrance. A very unusual and different iris. Much admired in large clumps in several Phoenix gardens at the 1987 convention. Abundant bloom on a clump and good increase make this an excellent garden subject. NET $30.00. Maple Tree Garden.
