From Fairmount Gardens catalog 1942/43: SPARKLING BLUE (Grant 1942) E. M. L. This almost flax blue self is very aptly named for the whole flower glistens and sparkles as if dusted with tiny frost crystals. The domed standards are broad and strong with no trace of lavender throughout. The semi-flaring falls are very broad and symmetrical with no crowding at the haft. Beard yellow. Heavy substance, superb branching, and the lovely color place this iris in the front ranks of this class of iris. Five branches and terminal with the lowest branch at seven inches. Blooms over an exceptionally long period, and the flowers have a delicious honey locust fragrance. 41 in. $15.00.
