|From AIS Bulletin #202 July 1971 Introducing WOODLAND SHADOWS (66 ID). Melodrama X (Black Taffeta x Dutch Doll). TB. EM. 29". Very sharp contrast between palest violet standards and darkest rich violet falls. Ruffled and flared. Excellent substance. Sib to Cherokee Princess. Not too tall but tall enough. $25.00. Tom Munger.|
|WOODLAND SHADOWS was first listed as a BB, but it grew out of that class and is now a TB. This may indicate a tendency to grow short during some seasons, but that's speculation on my part. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 12.]|
