| STYLE MASTER (Tompkins 1965) E. ML. 44 in. (Silken Sails x Mountain Music) x Licorice Stick. Seldom does one find such perfection of form in a dark Iris as is possessed by Style Master. While it is not really a black, it is assuredly one of the darkest of the blackish-toned blue class. A self, it is somewhere between very dark navy blue, Admiral blue and blackish aconite, this latter color probably adding just enough of a blackish-purple tint to give a lively depth to the color. The flowers are huge, with broad, ruffled and fluted petals of heavy substance and have a deep lustrous finish which is absolutely clean and unveined and further accented by a full, wide beard of very dark blacked-toned blue. Very strong, tall stalks with excellent branching and fine placement. See picture, page 4. No. 62-93 ........ $ 25.00. [Fleur de Lis catalog, 1965]
