From AIS Bulletin #201 April 1971 Introducing VICTORIAN DAYS (Sellman '71). TB. 34". Mid-season. (Gaily Clad X Bon Vivant). A really different color combination. By chart, the standards are carmine rose and the falls mineral violet, but the garden effect is that of pink standards and violet falls - unlike anything we have seen before. The beard is a bright peach pink. Standards are closed and falls flaring. The ruffled and laced flowers measure 5-1/2 inches overall and are carried on three branches and terminal. Sdlg. A-10. Net $25.00. Rees Iris Garden
