Full Description

From Melrose Gardens catalog for 1967: “Imagine growing iris that never has two stems with the same color flowers! That’s Humoresque. The flowers on a single stem will be much alike but not at all similar to the flowers on the stem next to it. The color varies from white with a few dashes of violet to a medium violet with splashes of white and everything in between! – and mostly between. Phenomenally different. An inheritable characteristic, too, the pattern passes on to the seedlings.”
