From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: BUCKWHEAT - 36" E-ML. D69-105: SPIRIT OF MEMPHIS X SOAP OPERA* The S. vary between creamy straw and light yellow with a hint of ecru; mediuum yellow F. with a variable greenish ecru influence and dark brown lines at the hafts to just below the yellow beards. Of all my rebloomers so far this is the one I'm now probably the most excited about! More thanfaultless, it truly is perfect in every single way and distinctive as well as beautiful! Not hafty to my eye, as with Spirit Of Memphis the brown lines add distinctive accents!! As well, this literally glows at times, especially the standards when they pale to give the feeling of an amoena - right under the surface! Super flowers with swirled domed standards and flaring falls, all so tightly constructed and well ruffled with plasticlike substance. Perfect S-curved show stalks with 9 buds always here. Incredible strength and an incredibly strong will to rebloom - usually starting in early October but last year one rhizome planted in '87 in our RE bed gave nine stalks in '88 and when the weather finally stopped the show there was still a huge clump left! ! ! Started blooming in early April - 1 stalk, another in May and then 1 more in June, 3 in July, 1 in August and 2 more in October' Can't wait 'til many iris introductions will have quality such as this as well as the strength and reblooming ability. Usually little if any pollen but am I ever going to start podding it like crazy! $35.00
