From AIS Bulletin #169, April 1963. Introducing SURPRISE PACKAGE-A very hard iris to do credit to in describing it. Very ruffled rosy-lavender standards. The apricot-chamois blended falls are bordered with a ruffle the color of the standards and rather elongated. Tangerine beard, very hardy, prolific, and a great favorite of mine. $15.00. Schmelzer's Garden.
