From AIS Bulletin #313 April 1999 Introducing UNCHAINED MELODY (Mahan '99). Sdlg. 88801. TB, 36" (91 em), EM & RE (Sept/Oct.). Ruffled white self with flaring falls; white beard tipped yellow. HARVEST OF MEMORIES X SOAP OPERA. A very dependable cold climate rebloomer combining the strong remontant characteristics of its grandparent, CORN HARVEST, with the fine form of Joe Ghio's SOAP OPERA. Until now, the best modern white cold climate rebloomers have been dominant whites out of violet lines. This new white iris offers outstanding breeding potential for attaining improved orange, brown, variegata, red and pink rebloomers. RE: CA,PA,VA (zones 6,7,9). $35.00. Friendship Gardens.
