From AIS Bulletin #349 April 2008 Introducing TRIBUTE TO ROSALIE (Joan Roberts '08) 34" E& RE. Sdlg. No. 1821-2RE: (Innerst 4863-3: Established Powers x Flights of Fancy) X Carnival Song. A favorite seedling of Rosalie Figge, prompting Ken to suggest the name. Stands apricot with a red-violet flush. Ruffled. Flaring falls washed and lined with red violet ending in a darker violet band. Apricot beards, white at the ends. Nice branching, 7 buds. After having 55 out of 60 days of rain and we couldn't walk, drive or paddle into the garden, most of the irises were lost (5-1/2 acres). There stood a 6" high iris with a tiny bloom of the most beautiful color I had ever seen. I lifted it out of the mud and put it in a drier bed. I didn't hold out much hope but was pleasantly surprised the next spring to see it growing- and then to have rebloom in the fall was miraculous. It was the only one of the remaining seedlings that rebloomed. This iris must have been meant to be a Tribute to Rosalie. $50.00. Friendship Gardens.
