|From AIS Bulletin #145, April 1957. Introducing DOUBLE DATE--So-named because of blooming both spring and fall; a remontant iris. Spring, 36", fall, 28". This lovely flaring, smooth, canary yellow iris of good size, has rebloomed reliably in New York City between Oct. 15th and Nov. 5th. It generously endows its progeny with this reblooming ability. The crisp standards are conically held. The whole flower is well-substanced and clean; as if newly minted. A most remarkable stalk in fall. Side branches start at the ground level. These are rebranched and the total adds up to 7 or 8 branches plus the terminal; candelabra-like. Buttercup yellow beard. Parentage: (Missouri x Great Lakes) x Sally Ann. $15.00. Edwin Rundlett.|
