From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: * STARSHIP* 36" E-L. D213-102: LEDA'S LOVER X (SKY HOOKS x CONDOTTIERE) - Silvery white touched yellow at the hafts; yellow-orange beards and long violet horns or spoons. The incredible power of this incredible iris!! Its second spring to bloom here it gave 29 excellent stalks with 6 or 7 flowers each and still left 28 husky increases!!! This was in an area with poor gravelly soil where most were way under par! Very good, very ruffly flowers that have always all had their long appendages - spring and fall! Many will often skip their appendages on their RE flowers. Reblooms well here but late, late October or November. Doesn't always have pollen but when it's there it's good. Sets pods too. Would be an exciting parent for its vigor alone. $35.00
