| From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing WIND RIVER (Woodside). 38-42". E-M-L. One of the most spectacular iris we have ever bloomed. Very wide, blocky, leathery, ruffled petals of a rich full purple with a faint reddish cast (most prominent under artificial light). Four and five bud sockets and up to 14 buds. Stalks often in bloom for three weeks due to its extreme resistance to heat, cold, and wind. Spectacular for show or garden. Pacific Panorama X (Ruffled Taffeta x Ultra Violet). $25.00 each. Sierra Vista Iris Garden.
