1933, Grinter

'Missouri' ( J. H. Grinter, R. 1933) TB 40" Midseason bloom. Color Code-B3M. ( 'Blue Ribbon' X 'Sensation'). Honorable Mention 1933; Award of Merit 1935; American Dykes Medal 1937.

From Cooley's See below: Gardens catalog for 1937: "Clear, clean blue, of sensational size. There has never been sufficient stock to supply the demand for this iris, declared by some observers to be the last word in its color."


Missouri (Grinter) -disappointing. [G. L. Pilkington, "Iris Notes", A.I.S. Bulletin 74 (July 1939): 31.]

Missouri: (Grinter). The most wonderful blue on cloudy days but shows a violet sheen in the sun. Well deserving of its award. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 18.]
