Full Description

TB 40″ ML

From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1956: “M. 40 in. (parentage noted below) Tall, well branched apricot salmon with apricot red beard. Flowers are broad and of good substance.”

(((Spring Maid x Far West) x Flora Zenor) x (Hall’s 42-05 x Loomis SQ-73 )) X (Pink Salmon), HM 1951.

Note: The 1959 CL records the parentage as: ((Spring Maid x Far West) x (Flora Zenor x Loomis SQ 73) x (Hall 4205 x Pink Salmon)); which does not add up to two parents. The parentage listed as such on this page is from Gordon Plough, who moved a number of Tompkins’ irises through his nursery.
