Full Description

From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: GREEN HAT (Murray ’55) M to L-38″. See in life-like color. Next to Green Chance, in my opinion, as the best of the GREEN Iris available today for widespread planting at a very moderate price. Unique is certainly the word for this. Standards green-chartreuse, falls hazelnut-brown, edged with green of standards, set off with gold beard. Heavy substance. Produces 7 to 10 blooms per stalk. Wonderful for hybridizers; has two greenish Iris in its pedigree, Green Pastures and Appointee. Green Pastures x Melitza X Appointee. $3.50; on $10 order $2.65; on $25 order $2.10 .
