| From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: WINTER ROSE (F. Craig '60) + EE-VL-30". Practically everblooming where climate permits. Originator states this has by far the longest blooming season of any Iris he has ever heard of. I predict it will be widely used by breeders; will impart its strong reblooming tendencies to many wonderful offspring. A tangerine-bearded bright orchid-rose, resembling Mary Randall, of more intense coloring. Very new; be the first to try it. (Craig sdl gs. X Orchid & Flame). Regularly $7.50; on $10 order $5.25; on $25 order $4.1 0; 3 for $11.70.
