(TB) 'Commentary'

1963, Babson

'Commentary' ( Sanford Babson, R. 1963) Sdlg. J72-11. TB, 38" (97 cm), Midseason bloom. Standards buff; Falls light lavender-violet, red-brown on haft; lavender beard tipped bronze. E61-3 X ( 'Savage' x 'Red Shadows'). Melrose 1963. Honorable Mention 1964; Award of Merit 1967.

A "kook" is nice to have around, and we loved COMMENTARY since we first bloomed it in 1964. It has performed consistently since that time. Odd with tannish standards and violet falls edged tan. A fine grower with lovely purple-based foliage. [Joe Ghio, “The Eye of the Beholder,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 199 (October 1970): 43.]
