From AIS Bulletin #249 April 1983 Introducing SOFT HALO Sdlg. 76·50. TB, 35", EM. Warm white with butter yellow halo and beards. For halo devotees who can hardly wait for Bride's Halo, Old Flame or Creme de Creme to bloom, now there is SOFT HALO, the earliest of irises with halos to bloom. Also, there is promise of rebloom in freeze-free climates as it occasionally buds in December in Texas. Bess Bergin X White Lightning. $25.00. Walter Moores.
