| From AIS Bulletin #141, April 1956. Introducing YESTERYEAR (H.C. 1955), embodying the "new look" in iris, is as flaring as the costume of a ballet dancer. Its color is between Nude (M&P11-A-4) and Champagne (M&P11-B-3). It grows about 38", is well branched with 9 buds and has an inconspicuous beard. Its extreme ruffling and delicate color gives an illusion of fragility but each flower lasts 3-4 days in either sun or rain. It seldom has pollen but sets seed readily. Sdlg #5160. $15.00. Charles Branch.
