| From AIS Bulletin #149, April 1958. Introducing WAYWARD WIND (H.C. 1957) (Sylvia. Murray X Rocket) X Cordovan. All who have seen and admired this iris agree that there is none other of this coloring. Best described as having the warm coloring of burnished antique bronze with a very slight infusion of chartreuse. A true self even to the beard. Excellent tailored form, heavy substance, tightly domed standards and flaring falls, prolific bloomer. Truly a distinguished flower. $20.00. Bakers Acre.
