SIKH. Although this iris was introduced in England only last summer, we were fortunate enough to secure it two years ago, and now have a large supply of well-grown plants. The color and form somewhat resemble Bruno, but is both more brilliant and coppery. Of largest size, on heavy stems, with broad foliage, it bloomed in the fall in our gardens. Each $2.50; three for $6.00; ten, $17.50. Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932.
