■(TB) 'Summer Cloud'

1930, Kirkland

'Summer Cloud' (James Kirkland, R. 1928). TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-B3L.

See below:


From Quality Gardens catalog 1931: SUMMER CLOUD (Kirkland 1931) M. 32". This is a seedling of Simonne Vaisserie and is appro priately named. It is, however, a vastly improved Simonne Vaisserie, which of itself, is a beautiful variety. S. pale blue which gradually change to a gray blue white, like a cloud in the summer sky. The falls are a real sky blue. The flower is large and well proportioned; stalk 38 inches tall and foliage abundant. The plant is a strong grower. When we saw' it in Dr. Kirkland’s garden we at once marked it for our own, when he should have a stock sufficient to allow it. S15.00.
From Maple Valley Iris Gardens catalog, 1937: SUMMER CLOUD (Kirk. 1931) M. 39 in. An exquisitely dainty flower in coloring though large and well formed. The rounded stands are blue-white, the falls clear sky blue. 50c.
From Iris City Gardens catalog, 1940: SUMMER CLOUD: Like a fleecy cloud against the bluest summer sky. Standards palest blue; Falls deep sky-blue. 32 in. 25¢.
