From AIS Bulletin #128, January 1953. Introducing WABASHINE-(Edmison)-The splendid performance of this iris either in the clump or in new plantings has led me to introduce it for the benefit of hybridizers, and lovers of Gudrun. For Wabashine is essentially Gudrun grown up. It has a little more flare and better substance, and is a cold rather than a warm white. The falls have a definite tint of heliotrope that disappears after the bloom is fully expanded. The type of branching is unsurpassed, but there are often only two of the deeply-set branches and the terminal, which latter has three buds, giving a very long season. Fertile pollen, but difficult to pod. Has set pods to SUMMIT and CRITERION. EM to L. 42" (WABASH x GUDRUN). $5.00. Avonbank.
